The distilled essence from our beds of Aquilegia 'Alchemists Mix'. We have separated out the most different and impressive of the dwarf golden and variegated leaf forms, some of which have pom-pom flowers and are fragrant. These utterly new plants are definitely the pot of gold at the end of this line of breeding.
Sowing advice: For best results, sow seeds immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. However, we sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, and often wait for spring before emerging regardless of when they are sown. But spring sowing will obviously give them a full season of growth if successful germination occurs.
