Achillea are best planted in a well-drained soil of loam, chalk and sand within an acidic, alkaline or neural PH balance. They are best planted in an area that receives full sun.

Achillea are best planted in the spring- use a garden fork to tease and loosen the soil, digging around 30-38cm (12-15in) deep. Apply a layer of compost and mix in well, spacing your plants around 30cm (12in) apart. Water thoroughly once in place to settle the soil.
In spring, apply a layer of mulch and a thin layer of compost. Keep your plants watered regularly if there has not been much rainfall. Deadhead the flowers to extend the flowering period for the following season. In autumn, cut to ground level unless you wish to leave flower heads over the winter to create interest.
It is possible to propagate Achillea by division during the spring.
