Large mats studded with small bells in Cadbury-milk foil blue in July and August with small ivy-like leaves - good tumbling down a bank or wall given regular savage trims

Val Bourne - Garden Writer

5 year guarantee

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July and August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Spreading mounds of deep purple, funnel-shaped flowers appear in July and August with heart-shaped to kidney-shaped, mid-green leaves that are retained all year. These low-growing Dalmatian bellflowers look wonderful cascading over a sunny, well-drained, rock garden or raised bed, used as edging or tucked in between paving stones or a dry-stone wall. This campanula is very vigorous, so it's best planted away from smaller, less competitive plants.

  • Garden care: Protect the tender foliage from slug damage using environmentally friendly slug pellets or beer traps. During the growing season water freely.

            I planted these in a difficulteam area, very little soil between steps and a raised bed. They are thriving and have filled an ugly gap effectively

                  Hello,

                  As a general rule plants that are grown in containers can be planted at any time of year as long as the soil isn't frozen solid. The best times are in the autumn when the soil is still warm enough to encourage root growth but the plant isn't in active growth, or the spring before the temperatures start to rise. You can also plant in midsummer as long as you make sure the plants are kept well watered. As for what area it will cover, this does spread to around 50cm.

                When is the best time to plant the border on a budget?

                We are intrested in purchasing the plants suggested on 'money's tight' pre-planned border. Can you suggest when it is best to plant these plants?

                  As a rule hardy plants grown in containers (such as the majority of the ones we sell), can be planted at any time of year as long as the soil isn't frozen solid. The best times to plant however are in the autumn when the soil is still warm enough to encourage root growth but the plant isn't in active growth, or in spring before the temperatures start to rise. You can also plant in mid summer as long as you make sure the plants are kept well watered.

                Lawn conundrum

                We have a small (good) lawn which is bordered on 3 sides by a low brick wall. Growing out of some holes in the wall are about a dozen Campanula portenschlagiana. They trail downwards but are trimmed back to between 4 and 8 inches above the grass. Under each and every Campanula the grass has died! What's up?

                • A:

                  It just sounds as if there is less light and moisture reaching those areas of lawn beneath the Campanulas. The only way to deal with this is to make sure that the lawn is kept well watered beneath these plants and to make sure they don't get too big.
