 How to grow

Choose a location with well-draining soil and full sun. Yarrow can tolerate some shade, but it prefers sun. Sow your yarrow seeds in the spring or fall. If you're sowing in the spring, wait until after the last frost. If you're sowing in the fall, do it at least six weeks before the first frost. Prepare the soil by removing any weeds or rocks and loosening the topsoil. Sow the seeds thinly and cover with a fine layer of soil. Water gently. Keep the soil moist until the seeds germinate, which should take about 10-14 days. Once the seedlings have grown a couple of inches tall, thin them to about 12 inches apart. Yarrow doesn't require much maintenance, but you should water it during dry spells and fertilize it once a year in the spring.
