Sainfoin -onobrychis viciifolia – grows best in dry grassland and is well suited to chalk and limestone soils on sites where there is plenty of sunlight. In gardens it makes a bright addition to a summer flowering wildflower meadow.
Sainfoin is a low growing species with spikes of attractive pink flowers that appears from June to August. It looks best growing with other chalk and limestone plants that flower in early to mid summer such as Oxeye daisies, Greater Knapweed, Kidney Vetch, Meadow Cranesbills and Small Scabious.

How to grow Sainfoin Seeds
Sainfoin seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, outside, where they are to flower, and covered lightly with soil. Germination can be improved by lightly rubbing the seeds between 2 sheets of sandpaper. This is known as scarification and helps break down the seed’s tough outer shell.
