Now that the warmer weather is with us in Yorkshire our aquilegias are getting ready to flower, albeit a little later than usual. however, in my mums garden, just on the other side othe the Pennines, hers are flowering their socks off. Also have some young aquilegia growing for next year, called sunshine.
Aqueligias are easy to grow and the seed can be collected and sown straight away on the surface of your potting compost and covered with grit, and left in cool shady spot. They are also good at self seeding everywhere, but I dont tend to have this as I deadhead the plant to keep flowing as long as possible then take any seed heads for sowing into trays. As for division, im not sure that you can with this plant, but I could be wrong.
