Looking After Your Achillea Moonshine

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 soil types as long as they are free draining, and will benefit from a sunny area in all types of garden from the more informal cottage planting schemes to town, city 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. Cut down to ground level late Winter/early Spring when you can also lift and divide the clumps to increase stock or move to another site.
