Planting Conditions

For optimal growth of Aquilegia 'Spring Magic Rose and White,' choose a site with well-draining soil and partial to full sun exposure. Ensure the soil is rich in organic matter and slightly acidic to neutral in pH. Plant in early Spring or late Summer, spacing them about 12-18 inches apart to allow for proper air circulation. Avoid waterlogged conditions, as this can lead to root rot. With these planting conditions, 'Spring Magic Rose and White' will thrive and produce its charming pink and white blooms.

Watering & Feeding

Water 'Spring Magic Rose and White' regularly, especially during dry spells, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged. Provide about 1 inch of water per week, adjusting based on weather conditions. Avoid overhead watering to prevent fungal diseases. Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser every 4-6 weeks during the growing season to support healthy growth and blooming. However, avoid over-fertilising, as it can lead to excessive foliage at the expense of flowers. With proper watering and feeding, this variety of Aquilegia will flourish and reward you with its beautiful blooms.

General Care

To care for 'Spring Magic Rose and White', deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming. Cut back the entire plant to ground level after flowering to promote new growth and maintain a tidy appearance. Keep an eye out for signs of pests or diseases, such as aphids or powdery mildew, and treat promptly if detected. Additionally, divide clumps every 2-3 years to rejuvenate the plant and prevent overcrowding. With proper care and occasional pruning, 'Spring Magic Rose and White' will thrive in your garden with its nostalgic blooms season after season.
