"Coventry-Bells" and "Bats-in-the-Belfry" are but two of the quaint old names for this bellflower which apparently came into cultivation in 1561. Stout stems carry wide blue bells, with thickly set leaves below.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
