As the name suggests this colourful mixture of red, cerise and pink shades will give a splash of colour in your garden border.
The plants themselves are large herbaceous perennials, all with delicate looking feathery foliage and the trademark open flowerheads. Flowers can appear from late May, depending on the variety, and last until October with the overall height reaching to around 45-60cm with a spread of 25cm over the season. Achillea last well in the vase too, so are a must for the cut flower garden.
Achilleas are fast growing and prefer an open site in full sun to produce a long season of colour.

Brookside Nursery advice to help you get the best from your achillea plants.

Achillea have hundreds of individual flowers on their flat open flowerheads and are magnets for beneficial pollinating insects. On an established plant you can literally hear the plants buzzing with insect activity in the summer months.

Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots or use the 6 Pack Cell Plant Trays. Once your plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for 5-6 weeks.

Add a slow release plant food like Miracle-Gro Slow Release All Purpose Plant Food  to your compost which will give extra nutrients for strong and healthy plant growth. 

Keep plants frost free until mid/late May and then harden off before being placed in their final positions when the risk of frost has passed in your area.

Once ready to plant, space approx. 45cm-60cm apart to give each plant room to grow fully without being overcrowded. Achillea prefer an open sunny site in the garden border in a fertile soil that is moisture retentive without being waterlogged.

Brookside Nursery Top Tip – Pinching out the first flower buds will ensure that the plant will put its energies into a good root system and foliage growth which will result in a stronger, bushier plant with more flowers.

*** For packs of 40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.
