Given that it's a British native, I had hoped it would self sow, but it hasn't produced a single seedling

I wonder why as when checking it says to let it self seed or fresh seed every 3 years.

The only reason I can think of is it needs another for cross-pollination

Yes that could be the cause I had nt thought of that.
