Genus Campanula medium
Common Name Canterbury Bells
Plant Type Hardy Biennial
Height & Spread 75-90cm ( 2.5-3 feet ) tall x 30cm (12 inches) spread
Sow Seeds Sow outdoors in a well prepared seedbed when the soil is warm from the end of May to August. Alternatively sow in modules indoors and plant out six weeks later in August/early September.
Thin/Plant Out Thin seedlings to 15cm/ 6 inches to allow plenty of space for the foliage and roots to grow. In autumn transplant or plant out where you’d like them to flower next year. Allow a minimum of 30cm / 12 inches per plant.
Conditions Required Campanula love moist but well drained soil. They prefer a site with plenty of sunshine. Feed and water regularly to keep flower production going for months.
Flower Production Sow this summer for flowering next year. Like many biennials Campanula medium begins flowering early in the year (May onwards) before hardy annuals and perennials come into flower in June. Spires of pastel blooms are produced for up to three months from May until the end of July.
Picking Cut flowers regularly and dead-head to make sure that your plants continue to produce new blooms. When cutting strip the lower leaves and place the cut flowers into a tall bucket of clean water. Allow to rest overnight before arranging.
Planting Combinations Canterbury Bells are lovely with other early flowering cottage garden plants such as Foxgloves, Honesty (Lunaria), Sweet Rocket (Hesperis) and Sweet William.
