My Campanula Viking flowers have all shriveled up. I plinked around online for answers on how to dead-head it so that I can have more blooms return. This is what I have done so far:

What I have read, and videos I've watched talked about cutting down more? I don't want to lose my plant Sad I'm confused on what to do, any help is most welcome! Big Grin

Welcome! Pat I do not get on as much as I would like , sorry I missed this. What you have done looks fine , at your sized plant I would not cut back much more. I have not had one for quite awhile hopefully someone with more experience with this plant will chime in.

Glad to hear to not cut back anymore, I'm nervous cutting anymore at all at this point lol. One stem of the plant is very thick and strong (the tallest in the picture), and I didn't want to cut it anymore. I'll keep an eye on it and report Smiling Thanks for the welcome Bob and Susan Big Grin Hurray! Smiling
