Planting Conditions

Campanula 'Takion Blue' thrives in well-draining soil with a preference for loamy or sandy soil types. Plant in a location that receives full sun to partial shade, ensuring adequate air circulation to prevent fungal issues. When planting, ensure the soil is enriched with organic matter, such as compost, to promote healthy root development. Space plants 8-12 inches apart to allow for proper growth. With these conditions, 'Takion Blue' will flourish, producing its charming blue bell-shaped flowers.

Watering & Feeding

Water 'Takion Blue' regularly, especially during dry spells, to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Apply water directly to the soil around the plant to avoid wetting the foliage, which can lead to fungal diseases. During the growing season, feed with a balanced liquid fertiliser every 4-6 weeks to support healthy growth and abundant flowering. Avoid over-fertilisation, as this can lead to excessive foliage growth at the expense of flowers. With proper watering and feeding, 'Takion Blue' will thrive and produce vibrant blooms throughout the season.

General Care

General care for Campanula 'Takion Blue' involves regular monitoring for pests and diseases such as aphids and powdery mildew. Deadhead faded flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming and prevent self-seeding. Pruning is minimal for this plant; however, trim back any dead or damaged stems to promote new growth and maintain a tidy appearance. Divide overcrowded clumps every few years to rejuvenate the plant. With attentive care and occasional pruning, 'Takion Blue' will continue to thrive and reward you with its beautiful blue blooms year after year.
