Betony

£3.50

Betony has beautiful pink flower spikes which can last from June – October. The seeds are dropped in late Summer so to keep this wildflower present in your meadow it will have to be cut late in the season at least 1 year in every 3. Betony is slow growing therefore is also ideal in a sunny border, or hedgerow. It prefers not to be shaded by other plants, but once established into a clump these can be split in the Autumn and transplanted.
