Aquilegia alpina: 

  • Also referred to as Columbine or Granny's Bonnets
  • A perfect pollinator approved species with deep blue bonnets of blooms on long thin stems to create a delicate display throughout early to mid summer.
  • A perennial variety that is ideal for creating an attractive cottage garden, rockery displays, striking borders and stunning cut flowers.

Sowing Instructions

  • Sow indoors for best results anytime from October until June in a seed tray of fine, quality compost.
  • Sow seeds evenly spaced out approx. 0.5cm deep, water well and place into a cold frame, unheated greenhouse or windowsill.
  • Continue to water until the seedlings appear, germination can take between 3 to 6 weeks.
  • Once the seedlings are large enough to handle, separate each young plant into 7.5cm pots ready to acclimatise to the outdoors.
  • Plants can be transplanted where they are to flower from June to October, spacing out by 30cm.
  • Alternatively sow seeds directly outdoors from April until June, thinning out as they grow.
  • These perennial flowers will bloom from May until July the following year, and each year after that.

  • Allow plants to self-seed for further plants each year.
