Sowing Columbines Directly in the Garden
Remove weeds and work organic matter into the top 6-8 inches of soil; then level and smooth. Sow evenly and thinly cover with ¼ inch of fine soil. Firm the soil lightly and keep it evenly moist. Seedlings will emerge in 22-30 days
Plant either bare root or potted plants in early spring or fall in well-drained, amended soil rich in organic matter. Columbine prefer a dappled-shade position in hotter climates, but do well in sunny positions (such as open meadows or alpine situations) in cooler climes.
The native plants spread by seed that spill out of chalice-like pods as they wave in the breeze. The reasons why columbines are considered easy to grow may be that they self-sow, grow quickly and bloom young.
Many take several weeks, months, and some even up towards a year depending on dormancy, region, season etc. It is important that the buyer understands that seeds are perishable products and seed germination can be adversely affected by such factors as mold/fungus, bugs, temperature, moisture content, light intensity, dormancy, care, contamination of planting media among many other reasons
Please stored in a cool, dry place
