Phacelia must be the best flower ever if you want to attract bees, hoverflies and other pollinators to your garden….they adore it!

A very informal flower, perfect for a cottage garden. It is a beautiful lavender in colour, has a sweet scent, flowers for ages and lasts well in a vase.

Phacelia is a hardy annual so you can sow it in April but for stronger, earlier flowers it’s best to sow it in September direct where they are to grow. A really easy-going flower to grow, all it asks for is full sun.
