Campanula Plant Care:

Depending on the summer and the site, Campanula carpatica may benefit from cutting back in the summer to freshen it and keep it blooming. This is best handled by cutting back half of the plant by a third and allowing the rest of the plant to continue. Once the cut section improves, cut back the other section. This will keep the plant in bloom for a majority of the season. Plants will benefit from being divided every 3-4 years in spring or fall.
