In soil or in pot, always delightfulPlant them preferably along the path that leads to the entrance of your house, magical welcome guaranteed! Ideally, this place is exposed to partial shade or to light sun, with cool soil and a neutral or even slightly acidic pH, and sufficiently sheltered from the wind so as not to damage the sometimes tall stems (up to 2 meters) of these bell plants. Most are lush and will grow year after year, so plan a nice flower bed and remember to cut the wilted flowers as soon as necessary to promote their future regrowth. Take the precaution to wait until all the leaves and clusters turn yellow before cutting them, as for a bulb: this will ensure regrowth in the best conditions. Plant them according to their size too (the tallest at the bottom of beds, the tapestries at the front of a border), and their flowering period to be able to admire them all on a daily basis and to ensure a beautiful sequence of outbreaks. Finally, you can plant them in a mixed planter or in pots (lily of the valley is very happy, for example), and even marry them with other plants in bouquets. With these bell flowers, you will amaze! Some genres are less known and deserve that you discover them…
Perennial, spectacular towns
Coeur de Marie, digitalis and snapdragon - Photo credits: Fotolia Digitalis is differentiated by its bells of more elongated shape and by its great height. Taller than lily of the valley and the heart of the city, it may need a staking but meets the same needs for fresh soil and semi-sunny, semi-shade exposure. It will flower from June to September. In the same style, the snapdragon also called 'wolf's mouth', is an annual with bright and varied colors, with large bells on stems that can reach 1.20 m ... To place in the sun! Still among the perennials, fuchsia is making a comeback. Flower adored by our grandmothers, it comes in many species which can be very different in terms of height and color - the fuchsia can even become a shrub. Its bells are very original, composed of a corolla, sepals, petals and a fairly long pistil. Blooming from May to October, don't forget to protect it from a winter veil in winter! More rustic, white or purple, the bellflower often grows spontaneously in rock gardens, from May until the start of the new school year. Its flowers can be bell-shaped ("bell bell") but also more elongated or star-shaped. We also like the Alice Hindley penstemon, which has lilac and white clusters; it looks a bit like digitalis and flowers from July to November, preferably in partial shade or in the sun. Or the polygonatum biflorum also called 'Solomon's seal', very elegant with white and green bells hanging in pairs. To plant in the light shade and in a clay soil, it is robust. The checkered fritillary is a perennial bulb. Its speckled bells in mauve, purple and white tones like partial shade and humidity. A protected plant! Allium bulgaricum (Bulgarian garlic) or 'Nectaroscordum' is a perennial about 1 meter tall that loves the sun and flowers from May to June. At the top of its rigid stem, the bells fall down forming a sort of umbrella, in purple and marbled white tones. Finally, the physalis, the famous 'love in a cage' flower that blooms from May to June, is particular in its production of a round, orange fruit, in its exposure to full sun and its limestone soil. It is an exception in bell flowers!

And among the shrubs…
Styrax japonica, Styrax wuyuanensis, Enkianthus campanulatus - Photo credits: Avettes nursery Discover also the lesser known holboellias, latifolia or angustifolia, persistent flowers that bloom in April / May. The male and female flowers are different colors, two-color and very fragrant, and they bloom in clusters on the lianas of this plant, which can easily hide a fence - ideal because it likes with all exposures and in all types of floors! Finally, on the fruit side, the blueberry has small round bells during its flowering!
Complete the atmosphere with a suitable decorPlace cast iron, glass or wire garden bells in the vegetable patch (as at Esschert) - these can be decorative and protect salads, for example, or serve as a support for growing climbing plants. And during your afternoon snacks or dinners, serve at the table with very trendy casseroles. Finally, you can take up the idea inside the house thanks to globes with or without a base, to present your favorite decorative objects of the moment ... the ideal: display a small vase with a dried flower from your garden!
