RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Sneezewort -achillea ptarmica – grows best on damp soils and in a variety of habitats, often on slightly acid soils. eg. Water meadows, streamsides, heaths and bogs. Sneezwort attracts a range of insects, in particular bees and hoverflies. Plants have small clusters of attractive white flowers that appear mainly in July and August. Sneezewort looks best growing with wildflowers such as Meadow vetchling, Betony, Sheep’s Sorrel and Tufted vetch.

How to grow Sneezewort Seeds
Sneezewort seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. The seedlings 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. Find out more at: rhs.org.uk/plants
