RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Lady’s Bedstraw- Galium verum-is the perfect wildflower plant for adding of bright splash of yellow to a summer flowering meadow. It is well suited to all wide variety of soils, but grows best on dry ground in full sun, making it particularly well suited to a seaside garden. Ladies bedstraw plants have tiny golden yellow flowers that grow in dense clusters. The blooms appear in July and August, and blend particularly well with other meadow plants. The tiny black seeds of Lady’s Bedstraw ripen slowly on the flower stems and can easily be collected in a paper bag. Lady’s Bedstraw plants look best grown alongside other summer flowering wildflowers such as Oxeye daisy, Meadow crane’s-bill, Black Knapweed, Greater Knapweed, Smaller Scabious, and Field Scabious.

How to grow Lady`s Bedstraw Seeds
Lady`s Bedstraw seeds can either be sown into trays of compost in the spring or autumn. Germination is normally fairly easy but can occasionally be slow. The seedlings can then 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
