Sowing: before winter in the ground or March - April for seedlings in a greenhouse. Seeds require preliminary stratification: sow the seeds, cover with glass and place in the refrigerator (temperature + 5 + 7 ° C). Crops are kept under such conditions for a month, then transferred to room conditions. At a temperature of + 16 + 18 ° C, shoots appear on the 10-14th day.
In the phase of 1-2 true leaves, the seedlings swoop down on seedling beds. In the phase of 5-6 true leaves, the plants are planted in a permanent place at a distance of 25-30 cm.
Blooms in the second year.
Care: prefers slightly damp, semi-shady places with light, humus-fertilized soil. Without reducing the decorative effect, the aquilegia bush grows in one place for 3-5 years. Loosening, weeding and moderate watering are necessary. After flowering, the stems are cut at the height of the basal leaves.
Pairs well with bluebells, ferns, irises and ornamental grasses.
