In Norfolk, where does galium odoratum (sweet woodruff) grow?

I'd be very grateful for some help please... I am getting married in early May to coincide with May Day celebrations. We are hoping to offer traditional May Wine to our guests as they arrive (instead of the usual champagne) but have a pretty small window of time to find the sweet woodruff (I believe it flowers in April) and then steep it in wine.

I would be very grateful if anyone knows anywhere where woodruff grows either cultivated or wild or where we might buy woodruff plants rather than seeds.



Hi - I have just looked in the RHS Plantfinder, and there are 7 Nurseries listed in the East area - one is in Norfolk. If you go to the RHS site and to 'Plant Finder'

then type in the plant name, click on 'suppliers' and you will get a list of the seven. I hope that one will be close to your home and be able to help you. Good luck.
