PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Ruddy clover, Ornamental clover|
|This ornamental clover is not only much loved by bees but makes a good cut flower. The flower spikes are soft to the touch and dusky-pink in colour. The foliage is interesting, in that it resembles that of peanut plants.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow February-May in well drained compost, covering with a dusting of fine vermiculite or sieved compost. Aim to maintain a temperature of around 20C/75F until germination, which usually takes 14-30 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, move them into individual pots and grow on, planting out after all risk of frost is past.|
