Cultivation Advice Aquilegia Columbine – Crimson Star

  •   Sow under-cover from 4-8 weeks before the last frost through to Jul, cover seeds very lightly with vermiculite and expect germination within 2 – 6 weeks at 15 to 20 °C.
  •  Transplant and grow on gradually acclimatising to outdoor conditions.  Seeds sown late will over-winter under glass / cover.
  •  Aquilegias will readily re-seed and can be sown direct to borders or in wild / natural grass areas.
  •   Feeding is unnecessary unless the soil is exceptionally poor. An aquilegia should not need staking, but an overfed plant will flop.
