RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

White Campion-silene alba – is useful for growing on fertile soils in full sun and is found on arable or open ground, often where the soil has been disturbed. In gardens it can be grown in flower borders or within patches of bare grass. White Campion has mildly scented flowers and attracts a range of insects including bees. The white flowers appear from May to September. White Campion looks best growing with wildflowers such as Oxeye daisies, Knapweeds, Musk Mallow, Meadow Cranesbill and Field Scabious.

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