I have campanula (looks a little diff than this) and it's starting to yellow... any guesses why? It was so lovely loaded w flowers and now most of the flowers are gone and the leaves are starting yellow. It's been very hot here, but I've been watering it regularly...

I used to keep Campanula's years ago but found the slugs and snails demolished them! How have you kept them away from yours Jacque?

Tasteyg ~
I've read that some campanulas prefer alkaline soil, which is moist, but with good drainage...
Pottyg~
I've had slug problems in the past with campanulas, but I shall use some "kind" slug pellets around the little campanulas which Jac is sending me...
Jacque has frogs which probably eat her slugs...
I wonder if Jac is going to send me frogs too...
Jac ? You said you were going to include some surprises in the parcel !!! Frogs ??? LOL.

I have Campanula's and also get a lot of slug damage, especially when first planted. resorted to putting plastic bottles over them at night until they get going!
