Perfect for pollinators

Wild Parsnip-pastinaca sativa– grows best in the semi-shade of hedgerows or garden meadow. It is a competitive species and useful for growing in areas where other wildflowers many not flourish such as sites with lush vegetation or high soil fertility. Wild Parsnip is a tall growing species with yellow-greenish flowers that appear from June to August. Plants will attract a range of insect life including bees. Wild Parsnip looks best growing with wildflowers such as Red Campion., Teasel, Hedge Woundwort, Cow Parsnip and Cow Parsley.

How to grow Wild Parsnip Seeds
Wild Parsnip seeds should be sown in autumn, either in seed trays or outside, where they are to flower and covered lightly with soil.

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.
