Yarrow: how to divide and replant it
As dapper in cottage gardens as it is in country settings, theyarrow, from its Latin name Achillea millefolium, despite everything has a small defect. She tends to show a certain lack of vigor when it comes to colorful varieties.
When and where to replant yarrow?
Whether pink, red or orange, all yarrow tend to age after three years after planting. They must therefore be regenerated by division before the tuft regresses in order to save them. Late summer is a good time to do this.
The plants obtained can be put in place before the winter cold. It is best not to replant yarrow in the same place as it is susceptible to diseases caused by pathogenic fungal germs that can remain in the soil for up to a year. Do not hesitate to replant theyarrow in several places, in order to find the place that suits him.
Either way, she pairs beautifully with most other perennials.
