I have lovingly raised this plant from seed.  A freebie from a magazine, but I've forgotten the name of it ?  I'm thinking it is some variety of campanula but don't know which type.

Is anyone able to help ?  And also able to let me know what to do with it.  I assume its perennial as I don't think I would have planted something for it to flower the following year unless it was.




 Also it seems a bit leggy, will it fill out or should I have pinched it out to make it a bulkier plant ?

Any advice gratefully received.  Thank you.  I hope you've all been enjoying your gardens in this lovely weather. image

    I can confirm campanula. It could be a Canterbury Bellimage

    great thank you.  Ok being a biennual, then maybe if this lot  seedi might have more in 2 years, is that correct... a lot of effort for something that takes 2 years to grow... not sure my patience lasts that long image

    I grow them from seed. Sow now, flower next year. Then you collect seeds and start again.

    With a perennial or biennial garden you think ahead.

    Dont just plant one here and there, put them together in a group.

    oh dear lyn, that's what I did.  Live and learn hey ! Well in groups of 3 I thought they would bulk out somewhat...
