Description

Thompson & Morgan is delighted to work alongside the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to offer special seed collections to home gardeners. Kew Wildflower Seeds have been specially selected by The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

A typical flower of chalk grassland, this low perennial scrambles amongst neighbouring plants with its long, wiry stems bearing dense clusters of frothy, yellow flowers from June to September. The flowers have a sweet, honey scent and attract a wealth of pollinators. Ladies Bedstraw was traditionally used to stuff straw mattresses, both for its scent and its supposedly sedative and flea-repellent qualities! The flowers can be used to make natural dyes. Height: 30cm (12in) Spread: over 1m (39in).

Sowing

Direct sow wildflower seeds outdoors where they are to grow in spring or autumn. Choose a position in full sun on well drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow seeds thinly, and rake lightly to cover the seed, or sow in at a depth of 1.5cm (&frac116;”) in drills spaced 30cm (12”) apart. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes 14-21 days. As seedlings germinate, carefully thin out any that are too close together with a trowel and replant elsewhere.

More Info
Water regularly until they are fully established. In autumn, perennial wildflowers can be cut back to just above ground level to make way for new growth in the spring.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
