Campanula are commonly called Bell flowers due to the shape of these flowers. They offer long flowering displays and are good as middle or back border plants in the garden.
They are adaptable to most soil kinds provided it's loose and well drained. They require well composted Soil. They prefer a slightly dry start and once actively growing they can be watered well making sure that allows the soil to dry out between watering. They are quite drought tolerant once established.
Pot Culture: Campanula can be sown directly into pots. Sow 5 – 6 seeds in a 12” pot and cover lightly. Sow the seeds 6 mm deep. Water lightly. Keep in shade till they germinate in about days. Gradually exposed to full sun. Soil should be moist but not wet. Later keep 2 – 3 healthy seedlings in the pot and discard the rest.
In Ground: To grow in ground, make seedlings first. Once the seedlings are 2 – 3 weeks old, transplant them into their fixed position in your garden. The spacing between plants should be 40 cm. Provide sufficient manure in the ground.
Watering should be done when the soil is dry. Keep it moist. During rains ensure there is no water logging. Feed Bahaar (liquid) fertilizer once in 15 days and later once buds appear feed Maxi grow fertilizer. It will ensure more flowers. Continue once in 7 days till the end of last flowers. To keep the soil enriched, put Biogro (organic manure) once a month.
