Planting Conditions

Achillea Sunny Seduction is a hardy and easy-to-grow perennial plant that thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. It can tolerate a range of soil types, but prefers slightly alkaline soils. If you want to ensure healthy growth, prepare the planting area by clearing any weeds and digging in some compost or well-rotted manure. When planting Achillea Sunny Seduction, space the plants about 30 cm apart to give them enough room to grow and avoid overcrowding. Be sure to plant them at the same depth as they were in their previous pot or container, and water them thoroughly after planting. If you are planting in a container, ensure that the pot has good drainage and use a high-quality potting mix to ensure proper drainage and water retention. You can add a slow-release fertiliser to the soil to help your plants grow healthy and strong. Achillea Sunny Seduction is a low-maintenance plant that is perfect for borders, rock gardens, and containers. With the right planting conditions and care, it will reward you with attractive clusters of vibrantly yellow flowers that bloom throughout the Summer.

Watering & Feeding

Water at least once a week during Summer months until established, but keep watering in Winter to a minimum. Once established Achillea are fairly drought tolerant. Achillea are easy to grow and will do well in a sunny position in most well-drained soils, but will not tolerate waterlogged conditions. It's important to remember that Achillea Sunny Seduction is drought-tolerant, so be careful not to overwater them. Once established, they require little watering, only during extended dry spells. In fact, too much water can lead to root rot and other diseases. As for feeding, Achillea 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 Sunny Seduction 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 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. Firstly, Achillea Sunny Seduction 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 and cutting back flowers after the season’s first flush. This will encourage the plant to produce secondary blooms within the season and prevent it from going to seed. In terms of pruning, remove spent flowers during the season to encourage more to grow. After flowering is complete, and Autumn turns to Winter, Achillea should be cut back to ground level preferably before the plants go completely dormant and the old flower spikes turn brown. They can be lifted and divided every three to five years, which will revitalise the original clump and give you new plants to grow elsewhere.
