RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Hedge Bedstraw-galium mollugo– grows in sun or semi-shade and is quite adaptable to most soils. It can be grown successfully in meadow grass and also works well growing in hedgerows where plants attract a wide range of insect life such as Bees, Butterflies and Ladybirds. Hedge Bedstraw is rambling plant with dense clusters of small creamy-white flowers that appear in July and August. Plants look best growing with other wild flowers that bloom in mid-summer such as Field Scabious, Meadow Cranesbill, Tufted vetch, Meadow Vetchling and Black knapweed.

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