RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Wild White Clover -trifolium repens – grows best in well-drained grassland and is suited to poor soils on sites in sunlight or semi-shade. In the wild, plants occur on roadsides and in old meadows. It is increasingly common to find agriculture varieties of this plant growing in the wild, which are larger and grow more vigorously. The true wild white clover is far more attractive and normally has smaller flowers. Plants offer a plentiful supply of nectar for bees and in the wild, White Clover can attract the Common Blue as a breeding butterfly, which will sometimes lay its eggs on the plant. White Clover is a low growing species with a creamy white flowers often tinged with pink, that appear from April to October. It looks best growing with other wild flowers that bloom in mid-summer such as Oxeye daisies, Bird’s foot trefoil, Red Clover and Field Scabious.

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