Description

This tough, spreading, UK wildflower has long, narrow, finely dissected, very aromatic green leaves, and white, umbel-like flowers floating above ribbed stems, and these easy-to-grow British natives are often tinged pink, adding to their allure. They are perfect for wilder parts of your garden and even amongst ornamental grasses to attract bees, butterflies, hoverflies and other beneficial insects. Yarrow is also good for cutting and drying, and has numerous herbal uses including making a distinctive flavour of tea! Since the times of Ancient Greece, yarrow has been used in poultices and ointments to treat wounds, and may alleviate digestive issues, may help reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, may fight inflammation, and finally...(lots of mays!)...may aid brain health!

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
