CAMPANULA IN FANCY POT


CAMPANULA IN FANCY POT

Went to Ikea the other day with daughter and son-in-law (he loved it...not) and saw these pretty metal pot covers. Can't remember how much they cost, but they were cheap so I bought 5 and this little campanula:-)

Ooh,I like that,Ba..the Campanula looks pretty in that pot..I haven't been to Ikea for a long time..not one of my favourite stores either..but their plants are always reasonable,and I like their picture frames..:o) Are you going to plant it outside?

I don't think it's a hardy one, but I'll give it a try when it finishes flowering. I think the worst things about Ikea are there are no windows and you have to walk where you don't want to go. I only like downstairs:-)

Has it got a variety name with it? It looks similar to one I have outside..but a lot of them look alike,don't they ?.

Thanks all:-) No name with it, but it's rather tiny. Cinderella and Pixi, I think I know which campanula you mean, I like it and find you can easily pull out what you don't want, One of mine has flowered constantly through the winter and it's growing in a minute gap between the house wall and the paving. Naturally it set itself:-)
Terra, my little campanula is honoured. It was the only one in Ikea that looked healthy, all the others I could see had dried out completely:-(

Yes I have one in front garden..like a wild one that has continually flowered through winter :)

I suppose if all our precious plants behaved in the same robust way, we wouldn't value them as much....strange things people lol:-)

Thanks all, there is a name on it and I can plant it out, can't remember what it is though at the moment lol. The only problem is I will have to find just the right size of pot to put in the pots if you see what I mean:-)
