The "Purple Bell Vine" is always one of the most sought-after climbing plants here. Deepest purple, almost black, flared tubular flowers with deep pink bracts, hang amongst the heart-shaped leaves. An exceptional container plant for the conservatory which will flower continuously for months on end.
Sow seeds, covering them thinly, preferably in spring but can be at any time, in good light, at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Prick out small seedlings into 3 inch/8cm pots containing a John Innes, loam-based compost. Grow on before planting into a large container or sheltered spot outdoors, with climbing support, and be sure to protect them from freezing in winter.
