Perfect for pollinators

Great Burnet -sanguisorba officinalis– grows best in damp meadows on clay soils and in full sun or semi-shade where plants are important for a wide range of insect life such as bees. Great Burnet typically grows to about a metre in height and produces beautifully coloured, crimson flowers between July and September. Great Burnet looks best growing with other meadow plants that flower in mid to late summer such as Black Knapweed, Field Scabious, Meadow Cranesbill, and Meadowsweet.

How to grow Great Burnet Seeds
Great Burnet seeds should be sown in autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. 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.
