The Kew Pollinators range of seeds from Thompson and Morgan has been specially created alongside the experts at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to attract and support a wide range of pollinators, including bees, butterflies and beetles, as well as a number of other important pollinating insects. Helping these pollinators to thrive is hugely important for our eco-system as a whole and these seeds, in their striking packaging inspired by artwork from the Kew archives, will help to create the environment which they need to thrive, with varieties chosen to help a wide range of pollinating insects, including some night flowering plants to help moths which also play an important part in our gardens.A majestic perennial for damp borders and waterside plantings. Hemp Agrimony rises to spectacular heights, its dull red stems topped with panicles of dusky pink blooms in late summer. The palmate, hemp-like foliage of Eupatorium maculatum forms a broad, spreading clump that makes a handsome addition to planting schemes. This native wildflower is a magnet for pollinating insects which throng to its nectar-rich blooms. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 120cm (48").
1 Packet (40 Seeds) (KB7581)
Sow Eupatoium indoors from March to May for at 20C in a good seed compost. Sow seed on the surface of the compost, gently firm down and cover with a light layer of compost or vermiculite. Do not exclude light as this is required for germination. Keep soil damp but not wet. Germination usually takes up to 30 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors.
When Eupatorium plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Choose a position in sun or semi shade on well-drained soil which remains reliably moist.
Alternatively, direct sow Eupatorium seeds outdoors where they are to grow from May to June on well-prepared soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. When seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to 30cm (12”) apart.
