Ribbed Mellilot -melilotus officinalus – grows well on fertile soils in full sun. Because of its quick-growing and competitive nature, it is a useful plant to include in field margins and conservation headlands. In gardens it would look pretty within a sunny wildflower border. Ribbed Mellilot is a tall growing species with yellow flower spikes that appear from July to September. Ribbed Mellilot looks best growing with other wildflowers that bloom in mid-summer such as Oxeye daisies, Greater Knapweed, Meadow Cranesbills and Small Scabious.

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