Part of the Campanulaceae family, the Campanula is loved for its large, wide, open flowers that some say resemble a bell, hence its common name. And with its blooms coming in a striking blue, it'll inject some colour and fun into your garden instantly. It is native to Siberia and Japan, so can tolerate drier and sunnier climates. In fact, there's not much this plant can handle as it's very hardy, making it ideal for those who are new to gardening.
Not just a pretty face, this plant is also a great pollinator and will support local bee populations - that's something to be buzzing about!
Ideal growing conditions for the Campanula are moist and well-drained soil, positioned in full sun to partial shade. Expect to see it flower from July to September. It works well in pots or at the front of flowerbeds.

Jo's Top Tip
During growing season, remove faded or dead flowers carefully with scissors as this will prolong the time in which the Campanula flowers for.
