Phacelia (Organic)

£2.28

Beautiful lavender-purple flowers adored by bees and other pollinating insects. Phacelia is extremely attractive to honeybees and other beneficial insects providing both pollen and nectar. It is a quick growing annual flower that germinates at low temperatures and has the potential to catch excess nitrogen too. We love sowing it in between our crops and rejoicing in the lovely flowers and insects that it attracts.

When to sow: March – May

Spacing: See below

Phacelia tips: Broadcast the seed directly onto well-prepared soil and rake in gently. Alternatively sow in drills 20cm apart so you can weed in between the rows with a hoe.
Phacelia is used both as a bee-friendly flower and a green manure. If growing as a green manure dig in the plants before they flower as they will start go woody once flowering.
