Bells of Ireland seeds are best established indoors, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. The seeds can be started in peat pots, sowing each seed at a depth of 1/4" under topsoil. Transplant or direct sow outdoors when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed.
Bells of Ireland will enjoy an area of full sunlight with temperatures of at least 70F or more. The soil should be neutral to fertile and also well drained. To increase drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil. Water daily so that the seeds and soil is moist until germination has occurred.
The seeds will begin to germinate within as little as 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants will reach a height of up to 30 inches tall, spreading up to 12 inches wide. Space your Bells of Ireland seeds about 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. Once established, these unusual flowers will produce rows of green, tube like flowers along each stem.
