Achillea Seed ( Perennial )

Gardening info:


Sow indoors 8-10 weeks before planting out, so around mid-March on the coast. Transplant or direct sow in early spring or early autumn. Optimal soil temperature for germination: 60-65. Seeds can take 10 to as long as 100 days to sprout. Bottom heat speeds germination.

Starting Seeds: Sow on the surface of the soil, under bright lights if starting indoors. Transplants can go out while the soil is still cool and there is still some risk of light frost. Space transplants at 30-60cm (12-24") apart.

Growing Plants: Yarrow is a tough plant that is suitable for xeriscaping, and it will adapt to pretty much any soil. For best results, grow in a loamy, well drained soil with a pH of 5.5 to 7.0. Divide plants every 3-4 years. Cut plants to ground level in autumn.
