Seed Details

Drought tolerant, deer and rabbit resistant. Butterflies love this plant and will frequent it often. Dead heading will extend the bloom season as well as prevent the yarrow from setting seed. Used for centuries for medicinal purposes, these plants produce clusters of tiny pink flowers, on soft, lacey, aromatic foliage. Excellent for use in fresh or dried flower bouquets and grows well in poor dry soil. Herbal tea from the flowering plant can be made to treat colds, fever & indigestion. Yarrow has also been noted for its use in slowing external bleeding when leaves are crushed and wrapped around the wounded area. Native Americans depended on it for all of the above and more. If you haven't cut all the gorgeous flowers for your bouquets or medicinal harvests, be sure to dead head the flowers to prevent heads from going to seed as well encourage longer blooming. Easy to grow.

Instructions

If direct sowing outdoors, plant yarrow seeds in late fall in mild winter regions or in early spring in cold winter zones. Indoor sowing starting about eight to ten weeks before you last frost. Yarrow seeds benefit from a cold period prior to planting. Surface sow. Germination is 10 to 15 days.

Avoid rich moist soils. Yarrow will get floppy with too much moisture. Well drained soil is essential for optimum growth.

Dried yarrow was among several medicinal herbs found during the excavation of a 50,000-year-old Neanderthal grave in Iraq. Also known as blood wort as it was used to heal the wounds of soldiers in the Trojan war.

Native to North America, Europe and Western Asia.

I’ve purchased seeds from this company twice and both transactions were pleasant. I really loved the diversity and quality of the various seeds sold. My first purchase was three varieties of cherry tomatoes, lime basil, speckled lettuce, kale, French radish, cilantro and parsley. I called today and had an amazing 25 minute conversation about what seeds could work for my balcony garden as it transitions into fall. They are very knowledgeable, passionate and kind. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer friends or family to this small business as my preference is to shop local. I will be purchasing through them going forward as they were helpful and the quality of seeds are great.

I went a bit crazy this year and ordered seeds from large and small companies all over Canada. The Brother Nature website is enjoyable to browse, and I like how the seeds can be viewed by weather and light conditions, and perennials by hardiness zone. I feel that their prices, shipping offer, and the seed quantities are very reasonable. My Brother Nature order arrived in good time right along with the other seed orders placed at the same time, and their packaging was simple and environmentally-friendly.

I buy more and more seeds from Brother Nature each year! They offer excellent quality seeds, competitive prices, and great service! I enjoy the variety of seeds they carry and their seed envelopes have more info than your regular packet, even some history/origin behind the seeds, which I find very fun and interesting. Highly recommended.
