Seed from the amazing National Plant Collections® of Aquilegia vulgaris cultivars and Aquilegia hybrids, here in Swansea, from singles, doubles, bicolours, coloured leaves and scented forms. All open-pollinated to enrich your garden with delightful surprises! At least 20 seeds per packet, often many more, especially in mixes. As expected, these seeds are collected from fewer mother plants this year as I need to cut back, but also downy mildew took its toll.  Don't worry, in a way there is MORE CHOICE as some mixes are still available from last year, in double-sized packets. If I run out of the latest harvest, I'll used the older seed mixes to make up your order unless you say differently.

UNHAPPY NEWS:  DOWNY MILDEW, please read: This may be my last ever aquilegia seedlist . Last year, 2014, I had downy mildew of aquilegias infecting many plants the collections. I have no idea whether the collections will survive next year. Downy mildew is a new disease of aquilegias, and has killed many plants already in 2014. I am doing a webpage about it, please follow this link: DOWNY MILDEW OF AQUILEGIAS. It is not known, but not expected, if downy mildew is transferred by seed, as I don't collect seed from DM infected plants. However, if your germinated seedlings look unusual do let me know and send photos. In particular: yellowy, angular patches on the leaves, lighter, whiter leaves or sickly and/or dying seedlings. I’ve never yet seen a seedling infected from the start, but this year I will be sowing seed that actually does have a strong likelihood of carrying spores if that is possible (harvested from infected plant ‘portrait 3’ shown in my DM case history webpage). My sowing of such seed is an experiment to see if seed transmission is possible. Two other research establishments will also be working in different ways with such potentially contaminated seeds. Please consider whether you still wish to buy my seeds, knowing that there is downy mildew here.

You are now on the page listing all the various Aquilegia mixes from Touchwood
There are 3 other aquilegia seedlist pages to visit:

Aquilegia Mixes

All seeds are £2.50 a packet, discounts for 6 packets or more

Black Magic Mix
(from 11  mother plants)

All the 'blackest' ones: singles, doubles, clematis-flowered, 'Black Barlow', 'William Guiness'and it's double form, are all here. Spellbinding!

NOTES FOR ALL MIXES:
Resulting plants should not be labelled, for example, 'Touchwood Eventide'or even 'Eventide'as they will be a total mix, of some recognisable named cultivars together with un-named forms.

ALL plants are open pollinated, many have recessive genes. I hope MOST of the offspring will be as the mix describes but you are likely to have a wide range of usual, unusual and desirable other sorts as well.  Have fun! 

Touchwood Black Magic Mix of aquilegias

White Magic Mix 

(from 20 mother plants)

You've guessed it: all the white forms to enlighten your garden. Singles, clematis flowered, long-spurreds and all kinds of doubles including some very special ones.

 'Magically' you can select all the white seedlings at first leaf stage, just discard any with any purple in the petioles, leaving just those with a whitish green stem.
Such selections may also be marbled colours, ie ones with white mixed in with the dominant colour. Note long-spurred sorts and possibly other species white ones may not follow this magical rule.

Touchwood aquilegias 'White Magic' mix

Magical Mayhem Mix 

(from 8-12 mother plants)

Larger sized packets: more seeds.

Last year's seeds so double-sized packets.

 I've made another mistake: when I created my mixes I started putting some black magic mix ones into the white magic mix container. Choose this for a mix from black AND from white parents! I THINK there's about 70-80% white seeds in here.

Choose this and benefit from my mistake!

Aquilegia vulgaris stellata mix from Touchwood seeds

Do you know when I was a little girl I used to pull the flowers off some of the Granny's Bonnets and stand them up on the grass-suspended over a crossed stick and pretend that they were ladies at a dance, I would imagine that they came alive at night. They were always dead by the next day, but I spent many happy hours. I never had pom pom ones though - I would have been thrilled with those. I will make an order soon. Our seasons are reversed here obviously - do I sow in spring or autumn? I am so happy to have found you!
'Happy gardening, Ellen Rowatt, Australia.

Touchwood Fancies mix

Touchwood 'Crinoline Ladies'

Pompoms mix from 9 parents

Sold out 2015

Touchwood Aquilegia 'Crinoline Ladies' pompoms mix

These cultivars have been grown in cottage gardens for centuries. The best are bicoloured, tight round pompoms. I've also included very full doubles that are pompom shaped when viewed 'face-on'.

Aquilegia flowers have 5 petals. Double forms have 10 around the flower in a circle (whorl), and more whorls of 10 within those. Pompom forms may have 10 x 10 petals, yes, 100 petals instead of 5! The photo, left, shows how these petals are stacked one-inside-the-other so each spur nestles in the spur of another.

Touchwood Aquilegia 'Crinoline Ladies' pompom mix

Touchwood Harmony Mix

Yellow bicoloured mix
(from 12 parents)

And/or choose LAST YEAR'S Harmony Mix from 25 parent types in double-sized packets.

These are unusual, they are the sorts of colours found in large, long-spurred aquilegias, but these are often only vulgaris-sized blooms.
Some may hold their heads hanging like the vulgaris cultivars, some are small, dainty long-spurred ones, which face outwards. These are hybrids, because of this, you'll be likely to get some very different and unusual offspring from this seed mix.

Touchwood Aquilegia Harmony Mix

Long-Spurred Mix
(from 20 mother plants)

 

And/or choose LAST YEAR'S Long-spurred Mix from 40 parent types in double-sized packets.

McKanas, Dragonfly, coerulea hybrids, Songbird series, State series, Swan series etc.

Touchwood Aquilegia Long-Spurred Mix

ex State Series Mix

 LAST YEAR'S seeds so double-sized packets.

Now, the f1 State Series is (mainly) the f1 Swan Series, but as I'm growing named plants of each Series I'm offering them separately as mixes, so also see below.

For further information, do visit Graham Rice's informative site. 

I've chosen photos from named plants from each of the ranges, however overall they should be interchangeable images, so do look at both pictures to get a good overall idea of them all.

Aquilegia State Series at Touchwood

ex Swan Series Mix

 

 LAST YEAR'S seeds so double-sized packets.

I'm sure you realise that the seedlings from these will be f2 generation so will show great diversity. If that's what you enjoy then I'm sure you'll be pleased with these.

I have found that colours of offspring may be similar to the parent, but shades may vary, so too the size and shape of flowers, plant height, and definitely its vigour (I find these US Series rather fussy to grow from seed in my garden).

And/or choose LAST YEAR'S Rosinas Mix from 35 parent types in double-double-sized packets.

Here's something different, from another keen gardener comes this collection. They are much larger packets of seeds as the viability is a little lower than mine as these are a year old. Rosina has an extraordinary aquilegia collection, and offers me all her 'left over' one year old seeds …BUT ONLY of her extra special forms.

Each year as I collect seeds from my National Collections I find that there are plants that have lost their labels. Oh dear what could they be?
Earlier, they went into the general mixes but what a waste of what could be extra-specials! Want to take a chance?
There's bound to be winners hence I've called it the Touchwood Lottery Mix!

? ! ?

Note, the unknown plants that I take seeds from change each year, as (hopefully) I re-label the marked missing-label plants when they are next in flower.

What beautiful colours bruises go after some days, not just 'black & blue' but rich purples, burgundies and yellows.
I think that the name of this mix (of the 3 above mixes) captures the striking colour effects of old bruises, without having to undergo the original pain!

Touchwood Aquilegia 'Black & Bruises!' mix

I think your website is brilliant, your passion for the plants really comes across and selections are first class. Now I've found you, I'll know where to come again in the future. Kind regards, Mike Brown, Surrey 2011 Oh, your seedlist makes me sick, I have looked through it twice already, but there is absolutely no space for more aquilegias …or is there? What an effort you put into the list! The collection list, starting of with white and getting darker and darker for example, all the text describing all the entries …Susann, Sweden'I wrote earlier that my seed sowing skill is limited 'well, I am really rather pleased. I've ended up with over 20 plants each from the pink, white and black stellata seeds. I've 15 'Green Apple' plants too. Unfortunately, I only got five 'Firewheel'plants, but that's fine because I'm sure the little devils will produce some very interesting babies none-the-less! I'm planning a new border just for my babies! Thank you so much. With very best wishes Julia Alder August 2010 Thanks for the info Julia …very good for me as the Green Apples and Firewheel ones are seeds BUY IN! so the best germination was with my own seeds …probably because they are fresher ones. And now that I know that Firewheel seeds were rather poor germinators I'll be able to put more in a packet next year. Green Apples is my own seed this year. 'You will be pleased to hear that I have supplied most of Birkerød with lovely Touchwood aquilegias. Best wishes, Lise Sonne Rasmussen, Denmark 2012

Requesting your help about names

As you may be aware there is great confusion in the names of Aquilegia cultivars, and as a collection holder I certainly don't wish to add to the problem! One major reason is that Aquilegias from seed may not come 'true'; due both to promiscuous bees but also due to recessive genes (so a plant 'looks' right (eg double blue & white) but has hidden genes (eg for singles, pink, white and 'not bicoloured'!).
Therefore, PLEASE do not name the plant until it has flowered and looks 'true' to its description.
MIXES: Resulting plants should not be labelled, for example, 'Touchwood Eventide' or even 'Eventide' as they will be a total mix, of some recognisable named cultivars together with un-named forms.

For my part, I am willing to do any extra work necessary for your customs' requirements, and not charge you anything extra. eg, Norway ONLY allows 50 packets of seeds in at a time.
