Wood Vetch –vicia sylvatica – is normally found in hedgerows, open woodlands and on banks. It will grow well in sun or shade and is a very decorative plant to include in a wildflower garden. Wood Vetch is a scrambling plant and has creamy white flowers from June to September that are marked with purple-blue. Wood Vetch looks best growing with woodland wild flowers such as Wood Cranesbill, Wood sage, Herb Robert, and Wood Avens.

How to grow Wood Vetch Seeds
Wood Vetch seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. Germination can be improved by lightly rubbing the seeds between 2 sheets of sandpaper. This is known as scarification and helps break down the tough outer shell of Wood Vetch seeds. The seedlings can then be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year.
