Bring beneficial insects into your garden like honey bees. These flowers give you a full palette of colour as well as attracting the insects that pollinate nearby tomato plants, fruit trees or strawberries.
We brought together these varieties to create an effective wildflower mix that contains flowers that grow well together. No variety takes over or supresses another variety so you get success from every flower.
You receive two plants each of:
Selfheal Prunella Vulgaris - A lovely carpet-forming flower that thrives even in semi-shady parts of your garden. Pollinating insects will love this flower as much as you will.
Meadow Clary Salvia Pratensis - A charming plant, great for growing in wildflower collections. They’re particularly attractive to pollinating insects like bees and butterflies.
Ox-eye Daisy - Wild white daisy with yellow centres attract the compound eyes of most pollinators. This variety looks great as a cut stem in a vase with sweet peas.
Red Campion - Tall wildflower that has a long flowering period; flowers are at their greatest number in June but some last through to autumn.
Teasel - After this thistle-like flower has bloomed allow finches to feed from the seed heads, then leave the heads overwinter for attractive stems.
We recommend you designate an area of your allotment (around a square metre) for your 10 plants and these plants will flower in their first year. This means you’ll have the insects you need to pollinate the crops nearby.
Once your flowers start to seed give your stems a little shake and let the seeds fall onto the ground for further flowers next year.
