Perfect for pollinators

Wood Avens –geum urbanum – grows best in the shade of woodlands and hedgerows but can also be grown in dappled shade where plants will attract bees. Wood Avens is a low growing species with yellow flowers that appear from June to September. The foliage provides ground cover for woodlands. Wood Avens looks best growing with woodland wild flowers such as Nettle-leaved bellflower, Herb Robert, and Red campion.

How to grow Wood Avens Seeds
Wood Avens seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, outside, where they are to flower, and covered lightly with soil. Wood Avens seeds usually germinate easily and once established plants will readily self-seed.

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
