Seed id – Aquilegia

(Question)

My daughter got this package of seeds from a Cabbagetown garden tour. She doesn’t remember what they are and I was wondering if you knew what they are and what to do with them.
Thanks for your help

(Answer)

Your daughter has been given a seed pod from Aquilegia, or Columbine, a beautiful, popular spring-blooming perennial that self-seeds liberally.  There are many different varieties – all lovely – so it will be interesting to see what comes up next spring!

Here is a link to a terrific blog post about Columbines, with some information about planting: https://torontogardens.blogspot.ca/2009/06/faves-oh-my-darlin-columbine.html
