SEED SOWING ADVICE:
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- 24C. Seedlings may begin emerging as soon as 10 days, but normally 21-28days.
If no germination in 4 weeks, wrap punnet in cling-wrap and keep in fridge (not freezer) for 4-6 weeks. Return to 15-24C for germination. Do not discard punnet as seeds will continue to germinate.
