The Q&A Archives: Planting Campanula

Question: I have some campanula seeds that I bought and was wondering if it would be too late to plant them outside (in September). If it is too late for outside germination, when would be a good time to start indoors for the spring? Once planted outside would I need to do anything special (mulch, cover) during the next winter so they will bloom? (since the plants are biennial)

Answer: Because winters are mild in your gardening region, you can sow seeds of Campanula outdoors in the early autumn. You won't need to protect your plants in the winter. Biennial plants grow vegetatively the first year and produce flowers the second. As soon as the plants are mature (two growing seasons), they will produce flowers.
