    How to Plant Bells of Ireland

    When to Plant Bells of Ireland Seeds

    Direct sow Bells of Ireland seeds in early Spring, when the ground is still cool to the touch, but the threat of frost has passed. Bells of Ireland have a long taproot and don't do well with transplant, so starting indoors isn't recommended.

    Where to Plant Bells of Ireland Seeds

    Bells of Ireland prefer a location that receives Full Sun exposure, though they can tolerate Partial Shade. Choose rich, loamy, moist, well-draining soil, though not soggy or wet conditions. Bells of Ireland can also grow in average soil with regular applications of fertilizer.

    How to Plant Bells of Ireland Seeds

    Sow seeds directly onto the surface of the soil, and firmly compress. Do not cover the seeds, as Bells of Ireland require sunlight in order to germinate. Germination will take place in approximately 21-25 days.

    How to Care for Bells of Ireland

    Once Bells of Ireland begin to come up, thin to a spacing of 12 inches apart. Protect plants from wind - taller growing plants may benefit from staking. Bells of Ireland don't rebloom, but they are a prolific reseeder. Once they've had a chance to go to seed, feel free to cut them down - though if you prefer to control the spread of seed, you can cut them down as soon as the flowers are spent.

Bells of Ireland Seeds

Beautiful and stunning flowers with a sweet, light fresh scent. They held up well in Upstate New York and I can't wait for them to bloom again this spring. Eden Brothers does carry superior seeds.

Beautiful in my wedding bouquet

I love Bells of Ireland...very cool name, but such a beautiful flower/plant. I had three spears of them in my wedding bouquet, and it was one of my favorite parts about my wedding day. I hope there will be more seeds in stock in the Spring, as I would love to grow them for myself :)

Prettier Than the Picture

I was attracted to this flower by its name. The photos do not do it justice. Very pretty plant. Glad I planted it!
