Lady's Bedstraw

Lady's Bedstraw

Galium verum

Price: £4.95

Golden yellow, fragrant, billowing masses of tiny flowers that smell strongly of new mown hay throughout the summer.

This delightful native perennial is fairly common along roadsides and hedgerows and looks fabulous in a meadow where its sprawling, clouds of scented flowers and soft, billowing foliage create gentle summery drifts.

Wild Strawberry

Wild Strawberry

Fragaria vesca

Price: £2.50

The tiny scarlet fruits of the Wild Strawberry, which appear from May-July, have a far superior flavour to any other strawberry as though being small has somehow concentrated the stawberryness!

Alternatively, why not try growing in a pot for easier picking! Read More...
