How to grow Autumn Hawkbit Seeds
Autumn Hawkbit seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. Seedlings, can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year.

Autumn Hawkbit –Leontodon autumalis – grows best in dry grassland and is well suited to fertile soils, on sites with plenty of sunlight, where plants will be attractive to Bees. Autumn Hawkbit is a low growing species with a yellow flower, resembling a dandelion that appears from June to October.

Autumn Hawkbit looks best growing with other plants low growing plants such as Lawn daisies, Selfheal, Forget-me-nots and Birsfoot trefoil.
