Plants to plant

We are experimenting with sowing appropriate seed to increase plant diversity as well as particular plants that are a host for food for natural enemies. For example, aphids are good food for a range of important natural enemies, like lacewings, lady beetles, hover flies...

We aim to provide more information about suitable inter row plants in the near future. Some options:

  • Rye grass
  • Rhodes grass
  • Prairie grass
  • Native grasses, species suitable?
  • plantain
  • clovers
  • wheat, barley and oats may be useful
  • buck wheat
  • parsley
  • basil
  • Alyssum
  • Cosmos
  • Coriander
  • Dill
  • Borage
