Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant in an area with moist but well-drained soil. Collect seed heads and disperse in the desired areas or if you do not wish to encourage self seeding, remove flower heads once they have gone over. Plant in groups of 3 or more. Sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi (Rootgrow) into the base of the planting hole and water well after planting.
Care Tips Cut back leaves in autumn. Aquilegias can self seed in the right conditions, to prevent this cut down after flowering.
Flowering May - June
Vase Life Strip the bottom leaves, and sear the stem ends for 10 seconds in boiling water and then place overnight in a bucket of cold water before arranging.
