RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

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

To discover more plants for Bees, simply enter the word "pollinators" into the search box above.

Wild Garlic or Ramsons -allium ursinum is a woodland Wildflower native to the British Isles. Wild Garlic or Ramsons grow in dense swathes across woodland floors and can fill the air with the scent of it’s flowers from April to June. Ramsons will grow best on moist fertile soils that are rich in leaf mould and will tolerate some sun but generally prefer deep or semi- shade. In the wildflower garden, Wild Garlic bulbs are best planted in shade under trees or hedges.

Wild Garlic looks best grown alongside other woodland wildflowers such as Bluebells, Primrose and Columbine.


How to grow Wild Garlic from Bulbs:

The distinctive cigar shaped bulbs of Wild Garlic can be introduced to their permanent planting positions in October and November. If the weather prevents planting, then bulbs should be stored fully covered in a very dry compost until things improve. Stored carefully in this way most bulbs should keep for at least a week or more. A hole approximately twice the length of the bulb is required when planting. If the soil is especially heavy then the addition of a little sand can help. Wild Garlic bulbs will do better if a dry soil with some leaf mould can be found in a shady position. Flowers should normally appear the following spring. If you wish to establish large swathes of Ramsons then consider the use of Wild Garlic seeds, which is a more cost effective option.
