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

Lady’s bedstraw- Galium verum is the perfect wildflower plant for adding of bright splash of yellow to a summer flowering meadow. It is well suited to all wide variety of soils, but grows best on dry ground in full sun, making it particularly well suited to a seaside garden. Ladies bedstraw plants have tiny golden yellow flowers that grow in dense clusters. The blooms appear in July and August, and blend particularly well with other meadow plants. The tiny black seeds of Lady’s bedstraw ripen slowly on the flower stems and can easily be collected in a paper bag.

Lady’s bedstraw plants look best grown alongside other summer flowering wildflowers such as Oxeye daisy, Meadow crane’s-bill, Black Knapweed, Greater Knapweed, Smaller Scabious, and Field Scabious.


How to grow Lady’s Bedstraw plants:

Lady’s Bedstraw 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 Ladies Bedstraw 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.
