Campanula persicifolia 'Blue' / Fairy Bellflower / Seeds

A lovely upright Bellflower with tall spikes of upturned blue flowers from June to August.  Plants form a compact rosette of evergreen leaves and send up flower spikes up to 1m high in early summer.  They are great border plants and long lasting cut flowers. 


The Fairy Bellflower grows best in sun to part shade and neutral to alkaline well drained soil.   Plants may need staking in exposed gardens.  A second flush of flowers often follow the first if the plants are deadheaded.


Pack of approx 2000 small seeds.  Sow in spring or autumn. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Conditions  Grow in full sun to light shade and well-drained neutral to alkaline soil.
Sow

Sow in spring or autumn on the surface of a shallow tray of seed compost.  The seeds do not need to be covered.  Do not exclude light and water sparingly.  Keep at 15-20C and seeds germinate in 2-4 weeks, sometimes a little longer.  Transplant seedlings to pots when big enough to handle and into the garden after the last frost.  Protect autumn sowings in a greenhouse or cold frame.  

Grow

Protect young shoots from slugs and snails. Plants may need staking in more exposed gardens. Cut back after flowering to keep a good shape and encourage further flowers.  Mature plants can be divided in autumn or spring.  Basal cuttings can be taken in spring.
