CUP & SAUCER MIXED
This is an attractive mix of deep blue, pale blue, rose pink, pale pink and white Campanula medium Cup & Saucer Mixed colours. Or commonly called Cup & Saucer Bellflowers, for the obvious reason of the shape of their flowers.
So they do indeed look like towers of ever so refined tea cups, each sitting on their matching saucers.
Campanula medium is a hardy, attractive biennial flowering plant.
And it makes an excellent backdrop for shorter annuals and perennials in a flower garden, or to grow specially for cut flowers in the veggie garden.
As a cut flower they have a very long vase life, lasting for weeks if water is changed regularly.
SEED SOWING ADVICE: QUICK & EASY
Sow Campanula medium Cup & Saucer Mixed seeds in good quality seed raising mix at any time.
Then lightly cover with fine river sand or mix to their own depth.
Now place in a warm, well-lit position.
You can use a heat mat if you have one, but a window sill or well lit corner will do just as well. Because these are very easy and reliable seeds to germinate.
And it does help to cover the sown punnet with a plastic lid to retain moisture.
Temperatures of 15-20 degrees C. are best for rapid and optimum germination.
Now keep moist at all times with a spray water bottle, but do not saturate.
Germination should occur in 14-28 days.
Then pot on seedlings to harden off and mature before finally planting out in the garden.
