Watering & Feeding

Achillea New Vintage White, like most plants, requires regular watering and feeding to thrive. This perennial plant is tolerant of drought and can survive in poor soil conditions, but regular watering will help it to grow and produce vibrant flowers. When watering Achillea New Vintage White, it's important to avoid over watering, which can lead to root rot. The plant prefers well-draining soil, so water deeply and less frequently rather than shallowly and frequently. Aim to keep the soil evenly moist, but not waterlogged. As for feeding, Achillea New Vintage White benefits from a balanced fertiliser in the Spring, as well as occasional feedings throughout the growing season. Organic fertilisers, such as compost or well-rotted manure, can be added to the soil around the plant. Alternatively, a general-purpose fertiliser can be applied following the manufacturer's instructions. By providing Achillea New Vintage White with consistent watering and feeding, you can help it to produce more flowers and maintain its health and vigour year after year.

General Care

Achillea New Vintage White is a hardy perennial plant that requires minimal care, making it a great choice for beginner gardeners. However, some basic care is still required to keep the plant healthy and thriving. First, Achillea New Vintage White prefers full sun and well-draining soil. It can tolerate some shade, but may not produce as many flowers. The plant is drought-tolerant once established, but regular watering is still needed during periods of prolonged dryness. To promote healthy growth and flowering, it's a good idea to deadhead spent blooms regularly. This will encourage the plant to produce new blooms and prevent it from going to seed. In terms of pruning, Achillea New Vintage White does not require much attention. Simply cut back the stems in the Autumn or early Spring to encourage new growth. Finally, it's important to keep an eye out for pests and diseases. Aphids and powdery mildew can be problematic, but can often be controlled with organic remedies such as neem oil or a solution of water and dish soap. Overall, with minimal care and attention, Achillea New Vintage White can be a beautiful addition to any garden.
