Phacelia Seeds

Phacelia Tanacetifolia
Scorpion flower

Often grown as a green manure, Phacelia tanacetifolia is also a popular pollinator plant, being extremely attractive to bees and other insects. It also makes a fantastic cut flower. 

Commonly used by farmers and vegetable growers, it works well as a green manure because it's fast growing and tolerates lower temperatures – it may even survive a mild winter. Phacelia doesn't fix nitrogen to the soil like leguminous plants but it does hold on to nitrogen, which is then dug back into the soil. Its root system improves soil structure and its growth habit and mass of fern-like foliage suppress weeds.

Sow at a rate of 1g per sqm.
