Perfect for pollinators

Hedge Garlic -alliaria petiolata– is most commonly found growing along hedgerows in spring and prefers semi-shade or shaded spots on damp, fertile soils. Plants host a wide range of insect life such as Bees, Butterflies and Ladybirds. In the wild, Hedge Garlic is also an important food plant for breeding butterflies such as the Green-veined white, Small white and Orange tip all of which, will lay their eggs on the plant. Hedge Garlic typically grows to about 2 or 3 feet in height and has small white flowers that appear from April to June. Plants look best growing alongside other spring wildflowers such as Red campion, Cow Parsley, and Bluebells. Alternative names for Hedge Garlic are Garlic Mustard and Jack-by-the-hedge.
