Location

Campanula Campanula plants resist to both cold and hot weather. They can be grown both outside or inside, depending on the conditions they find in the environment. It is better to place them in sunny spots or a few shadowed, but not much. Just be sure you avoid those corners where the wind blows and temperature differences can be felt pretty easily. A well drained soil is the ideal location for these plants. Add some organic material to the mold and you will have the perfect mixture for campanula to deepen their roots. If you place them in vases, be sure you add some clay inside the pot so that water does not stagnate. Stagnating water can be very harmful for plants which grow on bulbs, because they can get easily attacked by fungal infections and molds.

In the meantime, keep the plants maintained by removing the dry parts and those who look weak and potentially harmful.
