Yellow Rattle Seeds (Rhinanthus minor)

Fresh seed from 2021 crop available for next day delivery or order yellow rattle plants for April delivery.

Yellow rattle seed is a vital addition to any wildflower meadow. By attaching itself to the roots of grass species and slowing their growth, it creates space for a wide range of wildflower seeds to flourish. Commonly found in grassy meadows and pastures throughout the UK.

Also known as 'hay rattle', yellow rattle seeds should be sown in autumn or winter to break natural dormancy in the seed. If this is not possible and a spring sowing is required, chill in the fridge for six weeks prior to sowing. This can be sown into existing meadows or alongside other wildflower mixes to create a natural, nectar-rich haven for wildlife and pollinators.
