Yellow Rattle - Rhinanthus Minor
This is a perfect addition to any wildflower meadow. It gains its nutrients from the roots of its neighbouring plants (hemiparasitic), so perfect to help suppress the grass and make space for other flowers. The flowering season is between June and September, and after flowering, the capsules will dry causing the seeds inside to rattle when ripe, hense the name.
It should always be sown in Autumn, as it requires a period of cold to help with germination. It should also be sown onto short grass, at a coverage of 1g per square metre.
It is recommended 1g per m2 and if you require a large amount please get in touch.
