Aquilegia Mckanna hybrids mixed, a lovely mix of double pompom flowers.

430152 Price:  £3.99

Aquilegias, also known as Columbines, are staple cottage garden perennial favourites, with their nodding bonnet-like flowers often self-seeding to bring early to mid- summer colour to borders, pathways and gravel gardens. The wonderfully frilly foliage appears first followed by tall stems topped with the delicate looking but sturdy star-shaped flower heads.

Aquilegias are pretty additions to the spring/summer border especially if you are creating a cottage garden/woodland feel.
Plant them in multi-purpose compost into pots to grow on and transfer them into their flowering position in any soil in late spring. Space them 30cms apart.  
Initially, it is best to plant them in fertile well-drained soil in either full sun or partial shade. 
Aquilegias have long tap roots (meaning they search for water) so they are quite drought tolerant, once established.
