Trailing Bellflower

A decorative ground cover

Price 1 Litre Pots £3.99 Each - 3 for £10

A low growing spreading Bellflower literally covered in small, star-shaped blue flowers from summer to autumn.

Where?

A superb, versatile edging plant that looks great scrambling between rocks, over a wall and between paving stones. Excellent for a container, hanging basket or window box. Happy in a sunny or lightly shaded spot.

How?

Undemanding and easy to grow in a well-drained soil. Add some coarse grit to the planting hole if your soil is heavy and likely to stay wet in winter.

This delightful bellflower is native to the northern Balkans in former Yugoslavia.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.
