Flowers

Aquilegia 'Columbine'

Unusual and highly attractive flowers in cream, pink, yellow and lavender appearing in spring. The long spurs displayed in the flowers are balanced by the dainty fern-like foliage.

Position

Sun or part shade.

Sow

In trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Cover lightly, firm down and keep moist. Transplant when about 5-7cm high.

Care

Choose a sunny or semi-shaded position that is well drained. Add Thrive Granular All Purpose Plant food for best results. Water regularly and apply Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser every two weeks for stronger plants. Remove spent flowers to encourage new blooms. Note: Perennials may be sown in spring in some places and will flower in 12-15 weeks. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem.
