Description

Campanula trachelium

Nettle-leaved Bellflower or Bats in the Belfry

A perennial wildflower of woodlands, coppices and hedgerows, best in dappled shade and on dry-ish soils.  The mid blue flowers are most attractive to bees and bloom July-Sept.

Sow in good quality seed compost, but don’t cover with compost, just with a thin layer of fine vermiculite. Keep moist, but not wet. Protect seedlings from slugs. Germination will be enhanced by a pre-chill of 4-6wks – place in a bag of damp sand and mix once a week to aerate before sowing as normal.

A useful, tolerant and easy native perennial for difficult places in the garden. Chop down in the autumn.
