RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Wood Sage –teucrium scorodonia – grows best in the shade of woodlands and hedgerows but can also be grown in sun on light sandy soils where plants will attract bees. It is a useful plant for providing continuous colour in woodland gardens after spring flowers are over. Wood Sage is a low growing species with attractive foliage and pale yellow flowers that appear from July to September. Wood Sage looks best growing with woodland wild flowers such as Nettle-leaved bellflower, Herb Robert, and Wood avens. Alternative names for Wood Sage are Hart’s ease and Garlic Sage.

How to grow Wood Sage Seeds
Wood Sage seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, 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. Find out more at: rhs.org.uk/plants
