Campanula ramosissima 'Meteora'

Bellflower

Hardy Annual

A quick and easy-to-grow annual bellflower. The bushy, dwarf plants become covered with distinctly veined, star-shaped, blue flowers, 3-4cm (1¼-1½in) across with pretty white centres. Meteora flowers over a long period and makes a truly stunning addition to a sunny border or container. Can also be planted in small pots, making a lovely gift idea.

Culinary note: The flowers can be used as garnishes but are also dried and then cooked in Asian cuisine. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sow seeds thinly in shallow drills 30cm (12in) apart in well-cultivated soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Thin out seedlings to 30cm (12in) apart when large enough to handle.Alternatively, sow seed early in the year onto the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed compost and place at a temperature of 15-21C (60-70F). Lightly cover the seed with a sprinkling of vermiculite. Germination will usually take 14-21 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart.

Flowers throughout summer with some light deadheading.
