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

Knautia arvensis – Field Scabious makes the perfect general purpose meadow plant for the wildflower garden. It is sturdy and competes well amongst meadow grass, attracts bees, butterflies and moths, and is at home on a wide range of soil types from neutral clays to chalk and limestone grassland. Additionally it has a long flowering season form June through to October.

The large pink pin cushion flowers appear in early summer and look best growing with Oxeye daisies, Black Knapweed, Meadow Cranesbill and Birdsfoot trefoil.


How to grow Field Scabious Plants:

Field scabious plug plants can be introduced to their permanent planting positions from late spring through to October. Initially they should be kept well watered and left to develop for several months. When planting into established grass it is advisable to first cut the areas where the wildflower plants are to be introduced and create a small bare area up to several inches around each planting position to reduce initial competition. Given the right conditions they will develop quickly into flowering sized plants. A few Yellow rattle seeds sown around each plug may also be of benefit in the long term by reducing competition from grasses.
