Granny’s bonnets or columbines (Aquilegia vulgaris) last only 3-4 days in a vase but they make such pretty additions they are a constant favourite in the cottage and cut flower garden. There are many varieties and colours to choose from, from single to double flowers, spurred or spurless flowers, and flowers with single colours or bicolours. These hardy plants can be sown directly in the ground or in trays for transplanting later. Most seed suppliers have aquilegias in their range, including Kings Seeds.
