Very pretty! I love all campanula and they seem to bloom for such a long time!

They certainly do & you'll never be short of them in future as they self seed everywhere!

@gjones first time I’ve grown one (was supposed to be an aquilegia but another wrong order 🙄) but absolutely love it! The flowers are huge!!

@jeatacake I thought I’d escape that with pots but I find all sorts popping up in the gravel and grass. Must have pulled up 10+ self seeded hollyhocks last week 😂

I know this all too well! Actually, you can get some great plants that way. Anything I see that's decent looking gets potted up. Foxgloves are by far the worst offenders in my garden!

@jeatacake I did the same, potted them up 😂 can’t turn down a free plant and one that’s taken no work at all 😂 as beautiful as they are I expect foxgloves can run riot!

They're a real pain now for self-seeding, closely followed by aquilegias & campanulas, then maybe hollyhocks! 😫

@jeatacake all are beautiful but only so many you can have in a garden 😂

I agree. Shortage of space is a big problem now, especially right now when you can't see any gaps! 😄

@jeatacake it’s nice when everything is filled out, even my pots are starting to intermingle now 😛

Lol! The more you get, the more it'll happen too! Apart from where the edge if the lawn is, you can't see any soil in the borders now!

@jeatacake I’m surprised the lawn isn’t shrinking a little every year 😉
