I have aqualegia bulbs, can I pot them indoors to start them off? Very new at gardening, new house, garden, getting into gardening but not very clued up.
Are you sure of what you've got? Aquilegias don't grow from bulbs
Lol see what I mean, deary me, well its not a packet of seeds its in a bag, maybe they are rooted?
They will be bare root plants. Do you have a cold frame as they will be best grown in a cool conditions. Either plant them where they are to grow or pot them up and put them in sheltered corner in your garden.
What is a cold frame? I could put them in a pot them put them outside? We still have hard frost here, soil bricvk hard? Xxx
Its just an unheated clear box with lid. Basically a small unheated greenhouse. I would just pot them up and place them in a sheltered corner against a wall or something or wait a little while till the ground unfreezes and plant them directly as they dont like root disturbance.
I normally just grow them from seed. You can literally sprinkle them on the soil and they pop up. They often self seed themselves.
Ok that's great, so glad I found this forum, am sure I'll have lots of more draft questions lol. Thank you xxxxx
This is a coldframe.
Pot them up using potting compost, water them, and put the pots in a sheltered place, as Cairnsie said. They are hardy.
Oh yes I've seen them, could get one of them, thank you xxx
