About Alchemilla

Alchemilla are clump-forming perennials with large palmately lobed leaves and clusters of small yellow or green flowers that flourish throughout summer and often in autumn. Alchemilla are best suited to flower beds and borders within a wildflower meadow, cottage or informal garden setting. They will also make a gorgeous addition to a cut flower arrangement. You should expect to see your plants grow to an approximate height and spread of 50cm (20”).

How to plant Alchemilla

Alchemilla are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of loam, chalk, sand or clay within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. Allow plenty of growing room for this plant and space them approximately 8-12 inches apart. Amend the planting area with a generous amount of compost and plant at the same depth as the root ball. Firm the soil back into place and water well. Alchemilla are best positioned in an area of full sun.

How to care for Alchemilla

Once established, Alchemilla requires little care and maintenance. Regular deadheading is necessary to keep your plants looking neat and tidy and to minimise any self-seeding. Regular watering is only required when the plant is located in full sun or during times of extreme heat.

How to propagate Alchemilla

It is possible to propagate Alchemilla by seed in spring or by division during spring or autumn.
