Q Please can you iden­tify this 3ft tall blue-flow­ered plant?

A This is Cam­pan­ula medium, a Can­ter­bury bell that pro­duces masses of pleated flow­ers. Stems reach 1m (3ft 3in) high and plants will grow in full sun or part shade. It is a bi­en­nial so will die af­ter flow­er­ing, but it should self-seed and the tiny seedlings will re­main as rosettes of hairy leaves over win­ter be­fore bloom­ing. You can buy pack­ets of seed con­tain­ing pink and white flow­ers too.
