A popular Achillea making a lovely display of red, pink and pastel coloured flowers right through from June to September.  This variety has been bred to have a nice compact shape, growing to around 60 70cm in height.  Looks great in a border or country garden and makes an excellent cut and dried flower.  Achillea flowers attract butterflies and bees in the garden.

Achilleas grow best in sun to part shade and well drained soil.

Pack of approx 200 seeds.  Sow in spring to autumn in trays or pots, or directly in the ground in late spring.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Hardiness Hardy perennial (RHS Hardiness H7)
Flowers June to August/September
Height 60-70cm
Spread 40-60cm
Conditions  Plant out in a sunny position in well-drained soil.
Sow Sow in trays of moist seed compost.  Press the seeds lightly into the compost and do not cover, as light is needed for germination.  Keep at 17-24C and germination takes a few weeks.  Pot on seedlings when they are big enough to handle and plant out into the garden after the last frost.  Keep autumn sowings in a greenhouse or cold frame over winter before planting out in spring.  Seeds can be sown directly into cultivated soil in late spring.  
Grow Plants flower in the first season from early sowings.  Clear back dead flower stalks in winter or early spring.  Plants start to regrow again in spring.
