HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow in late fall, planting the seed on the surface of the soil since it needs light to germinate. For spring planting, stratify by mixing the seed with moist sand and storing in the refrigerator for 30 days before planting. Stratified seed can also be started indoors, planted on the surface of a flat and watered from the bottom; keep at a temperature of 60-65 degrees F until germination.

Growing: This plant prefers dry or sandy soil, though it adapts very well to rocky or woodland soil. When grown from seed, it may not flower until its second year. Seedlings should be watered occasionally until they become developed; mature plants prefer dry soil and only need watering in drought conditions. This plant will self-seed, though it does not become invasive. Harebell attracts bees while resisting rabbits and deer.

Harvesting: For fresh flowers, cut the stems and place them in water immediately.

Seed Saving: Since the tiny seed pods on the stalk will ripen at different times, the seed will need to be harvested over period of time. Shake the entire plant over a container to remove the seed that has ripened, repeating the process every few days until all the seed on the stalk has ripened. Store the cleaned seed in a cool, dry place.

Native Wildflower Seeds

I was so happy to find the Everwilde Farms online. I had been learning about native plants from the Audubon Society website and I wanted to find seeds that were recommended. I found many locally, but a few were difficult to locate. I love the information that was sent with my seeds...that described the best way to plant and when. It was so helpful. And I loved that the seeds come in vacuum sealed packets. I feel confident in the quality of the seeds. Thank you !

Pleased with your service. Most impressed by your packaging. Can't wait to plant and have a crop to continue my personal history to share with the Great Grands, commonly known as The Littles.. Thanks

poor germination poor vigor

This seed had poor germination and poor vigor, as if the seed were old seed. I utilized seed that I harvested from established plants along side, and it germinated and thrived, in the same soil at the same planting time.

Often identified as Scotland's bluebell, the Harebell can also be found throughout much of North America and Europe. The delicate purple bells add charm and elegance to any garden or planting.
Often identified as Scotland's "bluebell," the Harebell can also be found throughout much of North America and Europe. This beloved wildflower even has a place in literature, being named in the poetry of Shakespeare, Rossetti, and Dickinson. In spite of its delicate beauty, this plant can thrive in adverse growing conditions and drought; its wide native habitat includes rocky cliffs, gravel, sand, and woodland. These blossoms were once used for the manufacture of blue dye for Scottish tartans. The genus name, "Campanula," means "little bell," while the species name, "rotundifolia," refers to the plant's round basal leaves.
