RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Tansy -tanacetum vulgare – will grow well in sun or dappled shade on damp soils and is found in hedgerows, open woodland and on banks or open ground. Tansy is an exceptionally attractive plant to Bees, and Hoverflies. It has attractive foliage and button shaped yellow flowers that appear from July to September. It looks best growing alongside wildflowers such as Meadow Vetchling, Tufted Vetch, Meadow Sweet and Purple Loosestrife. An alternative name for Tansy is Batchelor’s buttons.

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