Seed preparation and growing methods

Aquilegia SeedsAquilegia is propagated by seeds, which are formed after flowering or division of adult bushes. The plant is capable of self-seeding under favorable conditions. Growing plants in the garden has some nuances that are the key to lush and long flowering. In order to grow a beautiful border or a flower bed of aquilegia from seeds, it is necessary to prepare soil and seeds in autumn. The use of seeds of the autumn harvest gives good shoots. In seeds of 2-3 years of aging, germination is markedly reduced. It is possible to sow in the fall or in the spring - in April-May.Before sowing, the seeds are subjected to aging at a temperature of 0 ... 50ะก for 30 days - stratification. For these purposes, a refrigerator or a cool basement will do. Seed stratification allows you to temper future plants and improve their germination.Means for preparing seeds for sowingAquilegia seeds are very hard, so before sowing in spring they are treated with a weak solution of potassium permanganate and germinated. For germination, you can use a growth stimulator for plants. Fresh seeds do not need to be prepared. In cold regions with a lingering spring, aquilegia is grown by seedlings. In March, seeds are planted in the prepared soil. After 2-3 weeks, shoots appear.

Seedlings are planted quickly, since the root system of the plant is pivotal and goes deep into the ground.
Late transplantation can damage the roots. In the southern regions, seeds are sown immediately in the ground. Sowing under the winter allows you to get an earlier flowering.

Sowing seeds in open ground as follows:

  1. Set the stage- dig up the soil, fertilize with organic fertilizers (compost, rotted manure, peat).Seedling aquilegia
  2. The soil is loosened, leveled. Seeds more convenient to plant in rows.To do this, make grooves 1.5-2 cm deep.
  3. The seeds are sown in the groovescover up the soil.
  4. The plot is well wateredwarm water and be sure to cover with a film or other covering material.
  5. Moisturize the soil1 time in 3 days. After 2-2.5 weeks, the film is removed. Shoots appear approximately 3 weeks after sowing.
  6. Growing seedlings continue until Augustthen transplanted to a permanent place. The flowering of young plants will begin in June next year.
Cultivation of aquilegia from seeds will have to be carried out every year, since the plant is two years old.
In the third year of life, aquilegia loses its strength, the bushes look depressing. But for gardeners who are used to seeing the exquisite beauty of the catchment every summer, growing seedlings does not present any particular difficulty.
