Sow any time indoors in punnets, or scatter directly in garden in autumn and winter.

Aquilegias germinate easily in the garden after winter chilling.

Indoors for early plants: Sow on surface of good quality seed raising mix. Barely cover seeds with mix to a maximum of their own diameter. Seeds need light to germinate.

Keep moist, at 15- 20C. If no germination in 4 weeks, wrap punnet in cling-wrap and keep in fridge (not freezer) for 4-6 weeks. Return to 15-20C for germination. Seedlings may begin emerging as soon as 10 days. But do not discard punnet as seeds will continue to germinate for up to 30-90 days.
