This yellow flowered Yarrow grows to a height of 120 cm (47") and is an essential for any garden.
Cutting up the stalks to add to the compost pile raw or as a 'tea' at end of season speeds up the process
It is highly drought resistant and perfect for Xeriscaping
Its scent both repels aphids, but attracts beneficial predatory insects
Sow on the surface of the soil, indoors 8-10 weeks before planting out. Optimal soil temperature for germination is between 15-28°C but note germination varies wildly from anywhere between 10-100 days to sprout! Bottom heat helps speed up this process
The plant should be divided every 3-4 years as well as cut down in autumn
