This is my first post as i now have my first garden and with it many things i dont know. I think this is aquilegia but my mum thinks not- Who is correct?! It would be great to know before i start pulling everything out!
Looks like it, should be putting up a flower spike about now
I'd say so. The only other possibility is Thalictrum aquilegifolium but my money's on the aquilegia.
I'd also say aquilegia. Some of mine will be in flower very soon.Is it a single plant, or are they a load of self-sown seedlings?If they're seedlings, I'd say sort them into individuals and transplant them soon as you can. They're not keen on being disturbed once they're settled. They may not flower until later in the year, or you may have to wait for next year. They're lovely in the spring and disappear during the summer so other plants can take over.
I don't think I'd do that. They're so close to flowering now and could lead to disappointment. You could move some of the seedlings.
Disordered is good with aquilegias, they're not formal sort of plants
Welcome DiggerD, happy gardening
