Help! Astrantia by seed

Michelle, I sowed my aquilegias in autumn for years and they always germinated, mostly in spring but sometimes very quickly and I had tiny plants to nurse through the winter. Last year I bought some new ones from Carrie Thomas at Touchwood, National Collection holder. She said January. This year I sowed in January in a cold GH. Excellent germination in March and no babies to suffer in winter.

See these and try not to get carried away

Ask Dovefromabove, she's been there and I'm jealous

Gg, I sometimes wonder just how old some of the bought seed is. Fresh seed never lets me down and they do seed around.

Yes Michelle, sow them now. Outside or cold GH, they'll germinate in spring.

Glad you're no Zombie Stacey. Reckon I'd feel like one on 500cal

surely 500 cals a day can't support life. 

But I'll leave the bacon thanks

go and ask one of the firms Joshua, but I would expect so. Try a small firm where you can speak to the boss.

Great ghosts fb

greenlove, if they haven't dried out they should be OK. Have heard that later in the season for moving is fine, they don't need to be green. Not drying out is the important bit.

They will germinate fresh very quickly won't they? I find it hard to look after all the babies through winter if I do too much of that
