detailed seed-starting info below

Lots of bright white nodding bellflowers on bushy plants, late spring to early summer. We've found that they are hard to get established in our garden, but once they're happy, they reward us with robust performance.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

Seed-starting details for this plant

  1. Seed from '00 AHS exchange. Baggy 35F (5w) - 70F (80%G, starting 1d)
  2. Same seed as above. Pot outside in February. Lots of germination noted by mid-April, still small by planting-out time in late May
  3. Seed from '04 garden. Baggy 65F (38%G, 9-15d)

The treatment without any cold has lowest germination percentage, but is easiest. Since seed is not difficult to collect, I don't mind the lower yield.
