Prunella vulgaris. (Self Heal)
Prunella vulgaris commonly known by the name bugleweed or self heal is a wildflower of the UK. Its ground cover habit & the fact it is a wonderful nectar source for our bees has made it popular in our gardens as well as the countryside.
It has small green leaves and the flowers sit around 10cm off the ground throughout spring and summer.
Tolerant of nearly all soils and conditions it makes it so easy to look after. Can grow rapidly. Either allow to spread or keep in a container. Happy in containers and borders. Allow to grow in place of grass in lawns for a mass of bees in summer (note only suitable for light foot traffic).
Comes in a 9cm pot simply plant out and enjoy.
Upon arrival allow the plant a day or two or recover from transit by placing in semi shade in cool conditions and watering. When planting dig a hole the size of the plant fill with water. Soak the pot and remove the plant will all its soil and place directly into the hole. Back fill and firm in then water and allow to settle in. If hot may required further watering.
