Campanula - what to do with it ?

thanks for the tip re dead heading, will get out there and check shortly.

planting in 3's is best, sometimes it just boils down to budget unfortunately.  I will just have to have patience and divide when it gets bigger. thank you for advice.

great thank you.  Ok being a biennual, then maybe if this lot  seedi might have more in 2 years, is that correct... a lot of effort for something that takes 2 years to grow... not sure my patience lasts that long

I have lovingly raised this plant from seed.  A freebie from a magazine, but I've forgotten the name of it ?  I'm thinking it is some variety of campanula but don't know which type.

Is anyone able to help ?  And also able to let me know what to do with it.  I assume its perennial as I don't think I would have planted something for it to flower the following year unless it was.

 Also it seems a bit leggy, will it fill out or should I have pinched it out to make it a bulkier plant ?

Any advice gratefully received.  Thank you.  I hope you've all been enjoying your gardens in this lovely weather.

I bought this white campanula this year.  Will it get bigger and bushier than this ? Will it just take time and get bigger each year.  Sorry I dont have much experience with campanula like this.

Any advice on how best to deal with this plant ? Thank you. 

30cm plant plugs - GW offer

I recieved my GW Offer 30cm Geranium plant plugs today.

Am I able to put them straight in the ground now or should I be putting them in a pot ? Bearing in mind holidays and I'm wondering whether they will be better off in ground in case I can't get anyone to water pots for me for two weeks.  I go away in a months time.

What do you all do with them ? Thank you as always.

I've started visiting a few open gardens this year after Monty Don recommended it to be the best way to learn about gardens.

I have to say it has inspired me to look into opening my garden, but I may be a few years off as need to ditch doing PTA work at my daughters school, and also need my garden to mature a bit more.

Do any of you open your gardens up ?  Would love to hear about the process if you do, or what you think of open gardens you go to ?  Good and bad points.

Thank you x

How far back do you cut them ?  I was thinking of doing this for the first time this year.

Is anyone able to ID this for me.  A friend's allotment is full of it and she is wondering how to tackle it.

 Thank you.
