RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Wild Strawberry -fragaria vesca–is a pretty spring wildflower that grows in open woodland, and on hedge or road bank. In gardens it makes excellent ground cover, where it can be used under fences, hedges, on grass covered banks or within gaps in paving. Wild Strawberry grows well in most soils, but especially those that contain lime and are slightly damp throughout the year. Plants have attractive foliage and small creamy white flowers that appear from April to June attracting bees and other insects. Wild Strawberry can attract the Grizzled Skipper as a breeding butterfly in the wild, which will lay its eggs on the plant. The flowers are followed by small strawberries and look best growing alongside other woodland wildflowers such as Greater Stitchwort, Red Campion, Wood Avens, and Columbine.

How to grow Wild Strawberry Seeds
Wild Strawberry seeds should be sown in 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.
