Perfect for pollinators

Water Avens -geum rivale– is an attractive wetland plant that grows well on moist soil and is found in water meadows and wet woodland. It will grow in sun or full shade, attracting a variety of insects including bees, and dragonflies. Water Avens is a low growing plant and produces creamy pink flowers from May to September. The foliage provides useful ground cover. In gardens Water Avens can be introduced at the edge of a pond where it looks best growing amongst other wetland plants such as Purple loosestrife, Hemp agrimony, Gypsywort, Fleabane, Meadow sweet and Water Mint. In a woodland setting it might look best with Red campion, Wood Crane’s Bill and Nettle leaved bellflower.

How to grow Water Avens Seeds
Water Avens seeds should be sown in autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. Seed trays should be left outside over winter and the compost kept moist. Water Avens seeds should germinate the following spring and 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.
