Canterbury Bells (Campanula Medium Rose-pink) - Campanula seeds are so rewarding to grow, and the addition of Campanula Canterbury Bells to your spring and summer garden will be most welcome! This popular and beautiful biennial was introduced to this country from southern Spain in 1596. Canterbury Bells make impressive cut flowers, and when cut off at the stem and kept in a vase, they last for weeks, as long as the water is changed daily. These sun-loving flowers will produce lovely blooms for the garden for weeks at a time.
Sow Canterbury Bell seeds indoors 6 - 10 weeks before your region's last frost date. Do not cover the Campanula seeds, but gently press the flower seed into the soil, and germination is usually within 14 - 21 days when the seeds are kept moist. Transplant the seedlings outdoors in rich, well-drained soil that has plenty of compost or sphagnum peat moss worked in. Canterbury Bells need a site in full sun to partial shade. Canterbury Bell care includes fertilizing every other month during the growing season for best height and heaviest bloom. The tall Campanula plant may need support to keep flowers upright. Cut Canterbury Bells back after flowering.
