Great Merry Bells
Great Merry Bells
The Merry Bell a bell-shaped flower hangs just like a bell. It is recognized as one of the most natural herbs to grow. It is not prone to insects or disease. Most would say that it is a disease free. It is tall and lanky as its growing but looks better when it starts growing in groups or clusters. The taller that they get, the more they begin to lean on each other which makes a lovely look against a fence or building.
It is seen growing primarily on slopes, banks, and hillsides. It can grow up to 24 inches. It prefers little to no sun but can tolerate it. It will show its bloom during spring through summer. Deer love this plant so wherever it may be planted, they will soon come. It has bright yellow flowers and a pleasant aroma. A mixture of sun and shade is best for this perennial.
Make sure to plant the Merrybells in a humus-rich soil that holds moisture and in the summertime stays cool.
Plant the roots about an inch in the ground. Do not leave them where they will dry out. Use a fertilizer that has slow-release right after flowering. Try not to use anything too strong. To keep the roots cool and feed the plant put the mulch of leafmould or bark on top. This will keep them in leaf, and they can regain energy for the next year. If you see fit divide the Merrybells after flowering, break them into two or three groups. Slugs are a problem if you have them in your garden so be sure to protect the shoots. Be sure to water them well the first season.
