A huge range of alpine and border campanulas is available at Bellflower Nursery.
Most gardeners and plant-lovers have grown campanulas at some time, either the taller herbaceous forms in mixed border schemes,or the dwarf, more compact varieties in rock and scree gardens, raised beds and containers.
These smaller campanulas are the alpine bellflowers, and by means of this website, I hope to promote this diverse and charming group.
In autumn 2005, I was granted full National Plant Collection® status on alpine campanulas by Plant Heritage (PH), previously called the National Council for the Conservation of Plants and Gardens (NCCPG). Please go to the Links page to find out more about PH.
As a collection holder, it is my responsibility to safeguard the species and cultivars within the collection and conserve particularly those campanulas which are only rarely available commercially and often threatened with extinction. This involves growing and propagating the plants in conditions which replicate those offered in nature and the wild - quite a challenge in the flatlands of East Anglia!
The collection of alpine campanulas is sited in the Walled Garden at Langham Hall in Suffolk, IP31 3EE. Visitors are welcome to this beautiful Georgian garden between April and October, Thursdays and Fridays 10-4, other times by appointment. Many of the plants in the collection are for sale from Bellflower Nursery which is within the garden or are available by mail order from autumn to spring. In addition, I have a wide range of herbaceous campanulas planted within the garden or offered for sale. Bellflower Nursery also stocks many interesting and unusual hardy plants. Please contact me for more information.
