Aquilegias are pretty additions to the spring/summer border especially if you are creating a cottage garden/woodland feel.Initially it is best to plant them in a fertile and well-drained soil in either full sun or partial shade. The plants will readily self-seed in the following year so are happy in most positions.Otherwise plant them in multi-purpose compost into pots to grow on and transfer them into their flowering position in late spring. Space them 30cms apart. Once planted and settled in aquilegias have long tap roots (meaning they search for water) so they are quite drought tolerant.The wonderfully frilly foliage appears first followed by tall stems topped with the delicate looking but sturdy flower heads.
