Wildflower Plug Plants for Green Roofs & Sandy Soils
Specially chosen to thrive in dry soil or on a green roof all year round, these bee-friendly species such as vipers bugloss, selfheal and rough hawkbit will provide a biodiverse haven for pollinators and other wildlife.
You will receive 10 species from a longer list of suitable UK wildflower plants, subject to availability.
These species appear on the RHS Plants for Pollinators list and are a great source of food for bees, butterflies and other pollinators.
Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our plug plants are an ideal way to boost species in a wildflower meadow or to easily establish plants in your garden or in areas where seed germination can be erratic.
We recommend planting 5 plugs per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
