RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Harebell -campanula rotundifolia– grows best in dry grassland and is well suited to chalk and limestone soils, on sites where there is plenty of sunlight. Harebell is a delightful plant to introduce into gardens, where it can be grown on a grassy bank or in a rock garden. Plants host a wide range of insect life such as bees, and butterflies. Harebell is a low growing species with nodding, pale blue flowers that appear from July to September, and look delightful blowing about in a summer breeze. Harebell looks best growing with other low growing chalk and limestone plants that flower in mid-summer such as Wild Marjoram, Wild Thyme, Bladder campion, Clustered bellflower, and Small Scabious. There are many alternative names for Harebells including Scottish Bluebell, The Devils Bell, The Fairies Thimble, Old Man`s Bells, Witches` Thimbles, and Fairy Bells.

How to grow Harebell Seeds
Harebell seeds should be sown in seed trays and covered very lightly with compost.
This is best done in the spring. Harebell seeds are usually easy to germinate and the delicate seedlings, which are quick to develop, can be carefully 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.
