Basal leaves of Canterbury bells - I know that there are a lot of different varieties, but do these look familiar to you?

Yes I agree with Dave! It looks like the "Cup and Saucer" type. I seem to remember they are bi-annual.

I've tried them numerous times as a reminder of my Grandfather who always had them.
They come up fine the first year but never make it through the winter to come back the second year (when they should flower).

I'm trying a three part experiment with the seedlings I have.

1) Several are planted in one gallon "plunge" pots with a good free-draining, high compost mix.
2) More are planted in the ground in a second year sheet compost area. They're quite a bit smaller than the first group but may turn out to be stronger plants.
3) The final batch are potted up and I plan to leave them in the unheated greenhouse over the winter, where at least crown rot shouldn't be an issue.

We'll see which, if any, survive. Smiling
