Planting and Growing Tips:
Yarrow is easy to grow and will tolerate most conditions providing it receives plenty of sunlight. Sow indoors 4- to 6-weeks before the last frost date of spring or direct sow outdoors — 1/2 inch deep — when temperatures are still cool. Space seedlings 4- to 6-inches apart and mulch to conserve moisture and reduce weeds. Once established, plants are very hardy and will thrive, even in poor soils with little water.
Deadhead or pinch off spent blossoms — or use them as cuttings — to promote additional blooms. Cut plants to the ground after flowers have faded and divide large clumps in late fall or early spring.
