Primrose

A universal favourite. Scented pale yellow flowers with a deep yellow eye.  Looks excellent grown with purple and white violets. The common name is primrose, or occasionally common primrose or English primrose. In appropriate conditions, the wild primrose can cover the ground in open woods and shaded hedgerows. It is found mainly by streams, under bushes, in orchards and clear, moist deciduous forests. Occasionally it also appears in meadows. Both flowers and leaves are edible, the flavour ranging between mild lettuce and more bitter salad greens. The leaves can be cooked in soup but preferably with other plants because they are sometimes a little strong. The leaves can also be used for tea, and the young flowers can be made into primrose wine.

Red Campion

Can also be known as Red Catchfly, a plant which can grow to around 1m tall, red campion fills woodlands and roadside verges with a warming dash of pink colour during the spring and summer. A lovely specimen to also brighten hedgerows, meadows and shady spots in the garden. Bright rose-pink flowers.

Meadow Buttercup

The tallest and most graceful of all the butter-cups. Glossy yellow flowers, superb growing in association with Ragged Robin. Common names include meadow buttercup, tall buttercup, common buttercup and giant buttercup. The Victorians believed that the buttercup represented ingratitude and childishness. Perhaps this stems from the playground game of holding a buttercup flower beneath the chin to see if it casts a reflection – if it does, the owner of the chin is said to like butter.

Self Heal

Flowers colour Violet/purple calyx, Likes Sun but will tolerate semi-shade. Selfheal also known as allheal or Healall is a short, creeping grassland perennial with a square stem and bright green oval leaves, borne in opposite pairs. The flowers are violet, hooded and two lipped and are arranged into a dense slightly oblong head. Flowering is from June to September. It loves lawns and will stick close to the ground in order to survive even the closest mowing – it will even flower on 3cm-high flower spikes to ensure survival of its species. It spreads by seeds from its flowers which are loved by butterflies and bees.
