Perfect for pollinators

Corn Marigold-chrysanthemum segtum– is an annual wildflower that used to grow in the wild, turning cornfields a beautiful gold in late summer. Sadly, this plant has been affected by modern herbicides and is now more or less extinct in the wild. Fortunately seed is readily available, so it can still be introduced into cornfield meadows and conservation headlands where it looks best growing alongside other cornfield plants. Corn Marigolds should be sown onto well drained fertile soils where there is plenty of sunlight. Plants produce bright yellow daisy-like flowers that appear from June to September and attract bees. Corn Marigold looks best growing with other annual wildflowers such as Corn Chamomile, Corn Buttercups, CornCockle, Wild Pansies, Cornflowers and Poppies.

How to grow Corn Marigold Seeds
Corn Marigold seeds should be sown in spring, directly outside, where they are to flower and covered lightly with soil. It is important to note that seeds do not normally establish well in existing grass. Instead they should be sown onto carefully prepared, weed-free soil, where they will usually germinate readily.

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

To discover more plants for Bees, simply enter the word "pollinators" into the search box above.
