Planting Conditions

Campanula 'Hirsch Blue', commonly known as Serbian Bellflower, is a hardy perennial plant that is easy to grow in a wide range of planting conditions. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. This plant is tolerant of a variety of soil types, including clay, loam, and sand, but it thrives best in moist soil that is kept consistently moist. The ideal planting time for Campanula Hirsch Blue is in the early Spring. When planting, make sure to space the plants about 12 to 15 inches apart, as they can spread rapidly and may become crowded if planted too closely together. Additionally, it is recommended to mulch around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weed growth.

Watering & Feeding

This Campanula requires regular watering to thrive, especially during periods of drought. It is important to keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged, as this can lead to root rot. Watering once or twice a week, depending on the weather conditions and soil type, should be sufficient for this plant. As for feeding, Campanula 'Hirsch Blue' does not require a lot of fertilisation. However, incorporating compost or well-rotted manure into the soil during planting can help provide the plant with the necessary nutrients to support its growth. Additionally, a balanced fertiliser can be applied once or twice during the growing season to promote healthy growth and blooming. It is important to note that over-fertilisation can lead to excessive leaf growth and fewer blooms. Therefore, it is recommended to follow the instructions on the fertiliser packaging and avoid applying too much. With proper watering and occasional feeding, this Campanula can produce beautiful blooms for many years.

General Care

Campanula 'Hirsch Blue' requires very little maintenance. It is a relatively pest and disease-resistant plant, but regular inspection for any signs of pest infestation or disease is recommended. Deadheading the spent flowers can help encourage the plant to produce more blooms and maintain a neat appearance. If the plant becomes overcrowded or begins to spread too rapidly, dividing the clumps every few years can help rejuvenate the plant and maintain its health.
