Perfect for pollinators

Scented Mayweed -matricaria recutita – grows on bare open ground in dry soils and full sun and frequently appears on farmland after the soil has been disturbed. In gardens it can be grown in a cornfield meadow where plants will attract a wide range of insect life such as Bees, Butterflies and Ladybirds. Scented Mayweed has fine daisy-like flowers that are very fragrant and appear in June and July. Plants looks best growing with other cornfield annuals especially Common Poppies and Cornflowers.

How to grow Scented Mayweed Seeds
Scented Mayweed seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, outside, where they are to flower, and covered lightly with soil. Scented Mayweed seeds are usually easy to germinate and quick to flower. To encourage plants to self seed the soil should be disturbed in the autumn.

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.
