Looking After Your Achillea Fanal
Generally pest and disease free an easy to grow herbaceous perennial in many if not all locations. A low maintenance plant which will tolerate a wide range of garden soils as long as they are well drained, and will benefit from a sunny area in all types of garden from cottage planting schemes to town, courtyard or coastal gardens, the sunnier the position the better the flower colour and production. Dead head or cut back the stems after flowering regularly to extend the blooming season.
