How to Plant Yarrow Seeds

Sow seed in cell packs or flats, press into soil, do not cover. Light aids germination. Kept at 70° F., germination in 14-28 days. Can direct sow into prepared seed beds thinly, in rows spaced 24 inches apart. Thin to 2-3 feet apart.

Growing Yarrow: Full sun, drought tolerant once established, best appearance with some summer water. Average to poor soil, good drainage. Tolerates salt, ideal in coastal landscapes. Excellent cut flowers, fresh or dried. Cut back by half when flowers fade to stimulate repeat bloom. Divide when plants become crowded. Deer and rabbit resistant. Attracts butterflies and beneficial insects. Easy to grow.
