Yellow Rattle Plug Plants Rhinanthus minor

Also known as 'The Meadow Maker'.

This pretty annual species is vital in helping establish and maintain your wildflower meadow.  A hemi-parasitic plant, its roots penetrate the roots of surrounding grasses, drawing water and nutrients from them, thereby reducing their vigour and preventing them from out-competing the wildflower species.  Without yellow rattle, the vigorous grasses in your meadow will soon take over at the expense of the wildflowers. 

It is important when establishing a wildflower meadow to build a yellow rattle colony.  It might take a couple of years for numbers to grow to an effective level.

Our strong, healthy plants are grown in 40cc cell trays and are ready to be planted in their final position.

Please note we start sending these out from mid-April and generally have limited stock.

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 10 yellow rattle plugs per metre square.
