Perfect for pollinators

Salad Burnet -sanguisorba minor – grows best in well drained grassland and is suited to chalk and limestone soils on sites where there is sun or dappled shade. In gardens, Salad Burnet can be included in a summer flowering mradow or herb garden where plants will attract a range of insect life such as Bees, and Butterflies. In the wild, Salad Burnet hosts the Grizzled Skipper as a breeding butterfly, which will lay its eggs on the plant. Salad Burnet is a low growing species with round reddish-green flowers that appear in mid summer from June to August. It has very decorative cucumber-scented leaves that look especially attractive when coated with raindrops. Salad Burnet looks best growing with other chalk and limestone plants that flower in early to mid summer such as Oxeye daisies, Harebells, Rock rose, Greater Knapweed, Meadow Cranesbills and Small Scabious.

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

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.
