Aquilegia scopulorum
« on: June 13, 2018, 06:08:49 PM »
I've managed to get some seed off my one plant - is it best to sow now or in autumn?

(As an aside I wish people were familiar with what this plant looks like - for years I've got seed from the AGS exchange and with one exception it always turns out to be something else - always with green leaves which is a give away).

Alplains give 3:6w that is seeds need cold stratification for at least 6 weeks

I produced a small batch of seedlings (from my own plant as well) last month.
I always use 500 ppm GA3 and they germinate promptly, like many other Aquilegias.

Either way, I would say sow them; they may germinate at warm, if not, they'll do it next spring, no harm done :)
