RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Field Scabious -knautia arvensis– makes the perfect general purpose meadow plant for the wildflower garden. It is sturdy and competes well amongst meadow grass, attracts bees, butterflies and moths, and is at home on a wide range of soil types from neutral clays to chalk and limestone grassland. Additionally it has a long flowering season from June through to October.The large pink pin cushion flowers appear in early summer and look best growing with oxeye daisies, Black Knapweed, Meadow Cranesbill and Birdsfoot trefoil.

How to grow Field Scabious Seeds
Field Scabious seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. Field Scabious seeds are usually easy to germinate and the seedlings, which are quick to develop, can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year.

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
