Canterbury Bells Seeds - Campanula Medium - Pollinator Friendly & Beautiful

Quantity: 100+ Seeds


Canterbury Bells are a biennial member of the Campanula family, Campanulaceae, and are hardy down to zone 6. The plants can grow up to 4 feet tall, and the flowers are very beautiful and abundant. Campanulas attract a wide range of pollinators too, so planting Canterbury Bells anywhere in or near the garden will increase pollination of crops and other plants in the area. There are many reports of the leaves and young shoots being edible and delicious. The blooming stalks make an excellent addition to just about any cut flower arrangement too. The packet contains seeds from 4 different colours, but mostly purples. These plants are deer resistant, so they don't need to be planted within a fenced area. 


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    Canterbury Bells seeds may be started in pots in the spring, or directly sown into the ground. If sown indoors, plant the seeds in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/8 inch below the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. Once germinated, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 8°C or higher. The plants don’t require very much attention once established other than maybe a layer of mulch, and regular watering.
