Campanula flowers are dying off???

I bought seven Campanula plants last month and they have been planted in the ground as a boarder. I have noticed that the flowers on three of them have started to shrivel up and they look a bit drab. I am no 'Green fingers' and would love some help.I have no over watered them and they are located in sun/partial shade. Am I correct in thinking these type of plant should flower all summer?

Thank you in advance.

    do you know what variety of campanula. It may just be that the plants have been in a warm greenhouse meaning they flowered early. When outside the frosts have probably just damaged the flowers. I grow several variety of campanulas and non are in flower yet,

  • The sort you buy in flower at this time of year are often not hardy - mine are growing well but none are anywhere near flowering.

    I'd leave them be and see what happens - if they don't pick up you know where the compost heap is!

    None of the Campanula I know, would be in flower yet. If they are it would suggest that they may have been raised in a hot house, in which case they might not do well planted out in a cold early Spring.
