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

Musk Mallow- Malva moshata is the perfect wildflower plant for adding of bright splash of pink to a summer flowering meadow. It is well suited to all wide variety of soils, but grows best on well-drained ground in full sun.
Musk Mallow plants have large showy flowers that grow in dense clusters that are often visited by bees. The blooms appear from July to September, and blend particularly well with other meadow plants. In the wildflower garden Musk Mallow can be used in flower borders and is particularly well suited to cottage gardens. It will also grow quite well in semi-sahade.

Musk Mallow plants look best grown alongside other summer flowering wildflowers such as Oxeye daisy, Meadow cranesbill, Knapweed, Scabious, and Birdsfoot trefoil.


How to grow Musk Mallow plants:

Musk Mallow 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 Musk Mallow 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.
