RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Selfheal -prunella vulgaris – is useful as a general purpose meadow plant that grows well in most soil types and tolerates sun and dappled shade. It works well in low growing grasses where the rich purple flowers will show best and is the ideal garden plant for a flowering lawn. The spreading foliage also provides useful ground cover for any dry bare areas. Selfheal is extremely attractive to bees and also visited by other wildlife such as Butterflies. It is a low growing species with purple flowers that appear from June to September. Selfheal looks best growing with other low-growing wildflowers such as Birdsfoot trefoil, Lawn Daisy, Kidney vetch, Forget-me-Nots and Black Medick. Alternative Names for Selfheal include Sticklewort and Carpenter’s herb.


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