It's just as the title says. I'm trying to grow aquilegia from seed but I don't seem to be having any luck.
I have sown the seed in three inch pots and placed in a heated propagator in a bright spot out of direct sunlight and kept moist. Some of the seed germinated and some didn't. The one's that have, seem to grow to about an inch tall and then before developing their true leaves they wither and die. With the exception of the variety Tequila Sunrise which have grown and now formed their true leaves.
I've been at this for a few months now and everything else seems to grow ok in the propagator except for the aquilegias.
The varieties are William Guiness, Pink and White, Yellow Queen.
