RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Dandelion –Taraxacum officinale– is a familiar garden plant and useful for a mini-meadow or flowering lawn. Plants grow well on most soils including fertile ones and can be introduced into short grass. Here the bright yellow flowers are very attractive to bees. Dandelion is a low growing species with a long flowering period from March to October. The flowers are followed by the familiar fluffy seed-heads often referred to as ‘clocks’. Dandelions look best growing alongside other low growing meadow plants such as Lawn Daisy, Speedwell, Bulbous Buttercup, Self heal, Forget-me-nots, Birdsfoot trefoil, and Cowslips.

How to grow Dandelion Seeds
Dandelion seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered very lightly with compost. Dandelion 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 into grassland or flowering lawns.

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.
