thanks Paul...For some reason there are no leaves on this bit of lawn, but the rest is a bit of a mess, as is the gravel garden. I am waiting for my leaf sucker upper to arrive in the post!

Looks pretty, Karen.
When did you cut back the campanula ?

7 Nov, 2011

 

That's great Karen - would love one of those

I cut it back after it flowered the first time....sorry I can't recall exactly when..possibly July...and this flowering has been even better.

Am quite taken with them. I have these in a trough, have been wondering what to do with them, really like them growing over a raised border like that. Mine are going strong like yours, thought a few weeks ago that flowering was over then came back in a flourish.

Am going to use your idea. Am thinking of putting them in a raised border next to a path I have created for veg, always room for lovely flowers!

Hi Karen.....
Had a seed come from somewhere I know not where, it grows in the Patio all along the back..under the step. Looks lovely in Flower...I took a rooted piece a few weeks back, and put it on the corner of the woodland bed, in the old stump, and it has taken...:)))
I also cut back after flowering, it looks untidy anyway...and gives it a new lift...

Brilliant Crissue. I have yet to find a seedling off this one, but then I do keep chopping it back! :))

I take small divisions of mine and they soon grow, just done some pots ready for the move. Posh self seeds easily so I have to keep a check on that one.
