Perfect for pollinators

Water Plantain -alisma plantago-aquatica–grows only in very wet soil at the edges of streams, ponds, and lakes. Plants can be grown in sun or shade and are ideal for a garden pond edge or bog garden where they will attract a wide range of insect life such as bees, dragonflies and damselflies. Water Plantain typically grow to about 2 foot high or more and produces tiny white flowers from June to September. It looks best growing amongst other wetland plants with similar flowering times for example Common Fleabane, Purple loosestrife, Hemp agrimony, Gypsywort and Water Mint.

How to grow Water Plantain Seeds
Water Plantain seeds should be sown thinly in spring or autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. The soil or compost should not be allowed to dry out. Seedlings can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year. Once established Water Plantain will self seed readily.

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
