Aquilegia Clementine 'Salmon Rose' NCG 146 Aquilegia Clementine 'Salmon Rose'
Columbine, Granny's Bonnet 'Salmon Rose'

Beautiful spurless, double, salmon-pink blooms on wiry stems - a very special aquilegia! These seeds were taken from plants away from other aquilegias, but it is still possible that there has been some cross-pollination. However, in my experience this variety tends to breed true.

Aquilegia vulgaris, Ex. Pink, single NCG 276 Aquilegia vulgaris, Ex. Pink, single
Granny's bonnet, pink, single

It's not possible to guarantee that these seeds will come true, but they were gathered from such a pretty pink plant that I decided to save them separately from the other plants in the garden. If they fail to produce pink flowers, they will reward you with a lovely selection…

Garden asparagus

Growing this delicious and exceedingly healthy vegetable from seed might seem a strange idea, since there is a long wait before even crowns can be harvested.
