Plant Now: Campanula

Looking for a haze of blue for your garden? Plant Campanula lactiflora. It’s a stunner, with stems up to 1.5m high. Great for picking, it bears panicles of bell-shaped flowers from midsummer to autumn. In cooler areas plant in full sun; in the warmer north partial shade is best. Protect young plants from slugs and snails.
