Lottie windowsill set likes
Pinch off wilted flowers (known as deadheading) to encourage her to replace them with new flowers.
She’s tolerant of a bit of drought but she prefers her soil to stay quite moist (not soggy).
A sunny spot
She’ll be happiest in full sun, but she’ll also be fine somewhere that gets a mix of sun and shade.
You could plant Lottie in a window box with other flowers, but be aware she has a habit of taking over.

About this set
A window box is a charming and simple way to add colour to your outdoor space. Flowers don’t come much easier than fairy bellflower, or campanula. They may look delicate but they’re tough little things, able to grow in pretty harsh conditions and the oddest of places, like cracks in brick walls.
Their hardy nature means they’re really easy plants to grow. As long as you put them in a spot that gets some sun, they’ll be fine. This set includes three plants and is available with a grey fibrestone trough and the option to include compost.
