RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Yarrow -achilla millefolium – is an ideal general-purpose meadow plant that is adaptable to most soil types and has a wide range of habitats. In gardens it is a perfect plant to include in a summer meadow or flowerting lawn where it competes well with other plants and grasses. Yarrow will attract many insects such as Bees, Butterflies and Ladybirds. Plants have attractive feathery foliage and produce cream or pink flowers from June to August. Yarrow looks best growing with other meadow plants that flower in high summer such as Oxeye daisies, Knapweeds, Mallows, Meadow Cranesbill and Scabious. Yarrow has many alternative names including dog daisy, fernweed, bad man`s plaything, bloodwort, carpenter`s weed, devil`s nettle, carpenter`s grass, soldier`s woundwort, squirrel tail, staunch grass, staunch weed, thousand-weed, and yarroway.

How to grow Yarrow Seeds
Yarrow seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered very lightly with compost. Yarrow seeds are usually easy to germinate and the seedlings, which are quick to develop, can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators.
The RHS Perfect for Pollinators mark is only given to plants that support pollinating insects in gardens. Bees, butterflies, moths, hoverflies and many others visit flowers to feed on nectar and pollen; while doing so they transfer pollen and increase seed set and fruit development.
