RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Common Cat’s-ear -hypochaens radicata– should be introduced into grassland and makes a perfect addition to a flowering lawn or mini-meadow. The flowers which appear from June to September, resemble small dandelions and are very attractive to Bees, and other insects. Common Cat’s ear is a low growing species and looks best growing with similar meadow plants such as Lawn daisies, Selfheal, Forget me nots and Cowslips.

How to grow Common Cat’s-ear Seeds
Common Cat’s-ear seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. Common Cat’s ear seeds are usually easy to germinate and the seedlings, which are quick to develop, can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators.
The RHS Perfect for Pollinators mark is only given to plants that support pollinating insects in gardens. Bees, butterflies, moths, hoverflies and many others visit flowers to feed on nectar and pollen; while doing so they transfer pollen and increase seed set
and fruit development. Find out more at: rhs.org.uk/plants

To discover more plants for Bees, simply enter the word "pollinators" into the search box above.
