Ribwort Plantain -plantago lanceolata – is found within most types of grassland on virtually all soil types. As such it makes a very reliable general-purpose meadow plant. In the wild, Ribwort Plantain is an important host plant for the Glanville and Heath Fritillary butterflies, that will lay their eggs on the plant. The leaves and seeds are also of value to other wildlife. Ribwort Plantain is a low growing species with brown flowers that appears from April to August. Ribwort Plantain looks best growing with wild flowers that bloom in early to mid summer such as Oxeye daisies, Knapweeds, Mallows, Meadow Cranesbills and Scabious.

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