Planting Conditions

Campanula 'Acaulis', also known as the dwarf bellflower, is a hardy plant that prefers to be grown in moist, well-draining soil. It thrives in full sun to partial shade and can be planted in garden beds, rock gardens, or in containers. To promote healthy growth, it is recommended to add organic matter to the soil, such as compost or well-rotted manure, prior to planting. This will help to improve soil structure and fertility, as well as provide necessary nutrients for the plant. Campanula Acaulis can be planted in the spring or autumn, but it is best to avoid planting during periods of extreme heat or cold. With the proper planting conditions, this plant can thrive and produce an abundance of bell-shaped blooms in the summer months.

Watering & Feeding

Water regularly during the growing season, keeping the soil moist but not waterlogged. Campanula Acaulis does not require frequent fertilisation but a general-purpose balanced fertiliser can be applied once a year in early Spring. Avoid fertilising late in the season as it may encourage new growth that will not have enough time to harden before Winter. Over-fertilising can also result in excessive foliage and fewer flowers.

General Care

To ensure healthy growth, it is important to keep Campanula acaulis well-weeded and free from debris. Deadheading spent flowers regularly can promote further blooming and prevent the plant from wasting energy on seed production. It is also recommended to cut back the plant's foliage after flowering to encourage a flush of new growth. While Campanula 'Acaulis' is generally low-maintenance, it is susceptible to some diseases such as rust and fungal infections, so it is important to practice good hygiene and avoid overcrowding the plants. Overall, with proper care, Campanula acaulis can be a charming addition to any garden.
