Product Information

A native of damp meadows, grassland and roadsides, Ragged Robin is enjoying a comeback thanks to its popularity with garden designers. Seen at all of the major flower shows, this little native plant has become a garden must-have almost overnight!

Recommended by the RHS as a plant that attracts wildlife pollinators, Lychnis is quick and easy to grow, and is ideal for naturalising - attracting bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects into your garden. With its clusters of star-shaped, deep rose-pink flowers, Ragged Robin is perfect for filling wild gardens or meadows with colour, and being a hardy perennial, will return to your garden year after year.

Never before has it been so important to protect pollinators such as bees, and this wildflower is ideal to encourage them into your garden. Bees are invaluable for pollinating a whole range of plants and especially useful for kitchen gardens to enable the formation of many fruits and vegetables. Take a look at our bee book for more details on these fascinating insects.

Supplied as a pack of 225 seeds, Native grown seed not taken from the wild.

Care Information

How to Grow Ragged Robin:

  • For best results, sow indoors in trays of compost. Cover very lightly with fine soil or vermiculite. Water well and place on a warm windowsill. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal.
  • When seedlings appear and have developed their first set of true leaves so that they’re large enough to handle, (usually 14-42 days), transplant them 5cm (2in) apart in trays. Remember to always handle by a leaf, never by the stem.
  • Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions before planting out to flowering positions in spring or autumn, spacing 25cm (10in) apart.
  • Alternatively, sow outdoors in a prepared seed bed, and cover very lightly with fine soil.
  • Water well and regularly until plants are established.
  • Keep plants weed free to avoid competition.
  • Thin seedlings to 25cm (10in) apart where they are to flower.
