see this link
one of my favorurite plants
that link may work better.
Carrie Thomas ensured that a lot of seed from her collection is distributed all over Britain. The plants will live on, but in other gardens.
The only remedy seems to be to dig up and burn affected plants.
thank you couldn't see how to do the link
I visited Carrie Thomas's garden the summer before last and brought some aquilegias home with me - my fingers are very crossed.
I have no diseased looking aquilegias growing but I think there are fewer aquilgias appearing in my garden than in previous years. I'll be watching them
What a shame. I'm waiting for some new aquiligia plants; first time for me. It's good to know what to look out for. Thanks Royd for bringing our attention to this.
Let's hope the aquilegias develop a natural resistance in time. Its not nature's way to wipe out a species with another, only humans do that.Some rabbits have become resistant to myxomatosis so hopefully the same will happen.
The Telegrapht will keep asking me to log in so what disease is affecting them?
Hmm...I can't see it either now. Its a mildew Dorset, they think it might be a new and more virulent species. If you google it there's info at Touchwood Plants.
i can still see it
Google Touchwood aquilegias, it gives a full explanation.
