Sowing Advice

Sow campanula seeds in good quality compost or seed raising mix at any time . Lightly cover with fine river sand or compost to their own depth. Place in a propagator or cover with a plastic lid in a warm place. We recommend germinating at 15-20 degrees C keep moist at all times, but do not saturate. Germination should occur in 14-28 days. Seeds trays may be placed in a unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination in Spring. Pot on seedlings to harden off and mature before finally planting out in the garden.
