CAMPANULA CARPATICA

Also known as Bellflower, this really is the all round star of the garden. Look at how it has recovered from many bouts of frost! Although don't introduce it to you garden if you don't want a lot of it, as it does enjoy self seeding in all little nooks and crannies. Growing tips, well you don't need any, it just about grows anywhere!

This is one of the plants I put in the gravel at the side of the house this year. Mine is looking a sorry heap in comparison to yours today - Mr Jack Frost has finally got to it!

You can tell you live near the sea...

I love that! I will grow it on my plot where it can seed itself around as much as it likes.
Take care xx

Louise, I have posted a chipmunk picture for you ;)

Your flowers are gorgeous! I haven't had anything up for quite a while. I was thrilled to have actually gotten my garlic planted before the freezing weather hit.

I hope your holiday was grand and all you hoped it would be. We visited with family and had a nice relaxing time.

Your photos are great - so clear. I love this flower - for filling little gaps everywhere - & producing such a bright blue flower!

Bellflower looks rather delicate and very pretty. How lovely. I love the colour. :o)
