I have purchased 150mg.seed packets of your Canterbury Bells, ( Cup-and-Saucer Mix ) Campanula medium.
The front of the packet states that they bloom first year from seed. The back of the packet sugest otherwise.
Please clairfy.

In some cases this plant will bloom the first year if started very early, but it is usually grown as and considered to be a biennial. In my experience, it is very difficult for a home gardener to get these started so very extra early and then also kept healthy enough prior to transplant into the garden; if they bloom the first year it would be late in the season. Like so many things in gardening, it's worth giving it a shot as long as you are also not disappointed if it doesn't turn out exactly as planned!
