RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Common Toadflax -linaria vulgaris– grows best in dry grassland and is well suited to sandy soils on sites where there is plenty of sunlight. In the wild Common Toadflax can often be found growing in hedge banks or sandy coastal areas. The foliage is extremely pretty and the flowers attract a wide range of insect life especially bees. Common Toadflax is a fairly low growing species with yellow flowers that resemble snapdragons; these appear quite late in the season form from July to October. Common Toadflax looks best growing with other plants that flower late in the season such as Common Agrimony, Greater Knapweed, Autumn hawkbit, Yarrow and Small Scabious.

How to grow Common Toadflax Seeds
Common Toadflax 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 Toadflax 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
