Aquilegia Roots - How to Sow

  • It is always best to start your bulbs indoors, in a greenhouse or polytunnel
  • Grow in large pots (5L or bigger)
  • Once shoots are 10cm in height you can move out into the garden
  • All root divisions / cuttings should be treated the same way when planting:
  • Soak in luke-warm water before planting
  • You can trim back the tips of roots to stimulate new growth
  • Prepare soil well prior to sowing
  • You can add RHS bulb starter to the base of the hole to encourage establishment
  • We recommend adding compost when planting roots
  • Remove all weeds, stone & roots
  • Choose a sunny location for Aquilegia
  • Aquilegia will also self-seed & spread
