  • Lets talk about them



    Looking to make a statement – than look no further then Bells of Ireland, such an enigma, blurring the lines between flower and foliage. In the loveliest shade of light green, and masses of bell shaped flower this will certainly get peoples heads turning. Amazing vase life (2 weeks!) and can be dried too. A must in anyone’s cutting garden.


  • How to make these beauties grow

    Sow: Mid spring. 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Or autumn sow and allow mother nature to work her magic.


    How: 3mm deep. Cold stratification required if sown mid spring (or autumn sown if you live in a frost free area) place seeds in the fridge for 4 weeks prior to sowing.


    Space: 30cm   


    Height 90cm 


    Where: Full sun - partial shade


    Days to maturity: 90-130 days. Depends on when you've sown and how long you want the stem length. 


    Pick: When the bells are formed and it's reached the desired stem length. Remove the lower leaves as these tend to turn yellow (I personally prefer to remove all but the top leaves). 2+ weeks vase life.



  • Notes From The Garden



    Branches readily - So either pinch, or wait until the 1st main stem is mature and cut. Smaller side branches keep growing.
