Knapweed (Centaurea)

Knapweed (Centaurea)
The Foragers farm is situated on an old wildflower meadow. Because biodiversity is paramount to the success of our culinary herb crops, we are protecting and further establishing the diverse flora and fauna found here. One of our favourites is Knapweed (Centaurea). It looks like a thistle and is most loved by pollinating insects, especially bees, flies, butterflies and beetles. The seed heads attract goldfinches and other seed-feeding birds. Anyone can grow this from seed at anytime of the year. Great for any garden.
