Campanula trachelium

Nettle-leaved bellflower Campanula trachelium pink Organic — Hardy plant

Campanula trachelium
Cheerful border
Purple flowers like large bells. A cheerful sight! The nettle-leaved bellflower (Campanula trachelium) is decorative in a border. It is a true native plant! Welcome bees and butterflies as summer visitors to your garden. These organic flowers are edible. The flowers bloom beautifully in the summer.
Cut back the plant in autumn to rejuvenate it. Prune it back to approximately 20 cm above the ground. Plant three plants per linear metre. Give the bellflower a slightly shady spot near a tree or shrub. Bellflowers love nutrient-rich, moisture-retaining soil that drains well. But the plant also does well in a dry spot. Remember to give extra water during dry periods. Bellflowers combine well with Endres's cranesbill and hostas, too.

Planting+

What do I need?

• Bucket
• Trowel
• Compost or cow manure pellets

The bellflower is a perennial that thrives in open soil. Dig a spacious hole for planting and till the soil well. You can improve poor-quality soil by mixing in some compost and cow manure pellets. Place the root ball of the Campanula at the correct height in the planting hole. The top side of the root ball should be just below ground level. Fill the hole up with potting soil and press firmly. Water the Campanula immediately after planting. The bellflower grows and blooms best in a location with full sun or half shade in loose, nutrient-rich soil.

Care+

What do I need?

• Watering can
• Plant food
• Shears
• Cow manure pellets

Regularly water your Campanula, because the soil around the roots cannot dry out. Regularly trim stems of the bellflower that are finished blooming, because this will encourage them to blossom again. For extra rich flowering in Campanulas, Bakker recommends regularly adding plant food to the water in the summer. Cut away unsightly leaves in the spring.
