How to grow

How To Grow Cluster Bellflower From Seed: Many gardeners start the Bellflower seeds in the early spring outdoors in a cold frame. If you want to get a jump start on this perennial, start the Campanula seeds indoors 6 - 10 weeks before the last frost. Press the flower seeds gently into the soil but do not cover them.

Bellflower plants may benefit from a hard trimming immediately after blooming to maintain a low, compact mound. Clustered Bellflower Acaulis is known to spread by sowing its own seeds, but it is not considered to be problematic.
