Hoary Plantain -plantago media– although quite adaptable to most soils, Hoary Plantain grows best in dry grassland and is well suited to chalk and limestone soils on sites where there is plenty of sunlight. It is a low growing species, with spiked pale pink flowers that appear from June to September. In gardens, this plant can be introduced into grassy areas or wild flower borders. Hoary Plantain looks best growing with other chalk and limestone plants that flower in early to mid summer such as Oxeye daisies, Kidney Vetch, Greater Knapweed, Meadow Cranesbills and Small Scabious.

How to grow Hoary Plantain Seeds
Hoary Plantain seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. Seedlings can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year.
