** Cloth of Gold Yarrow **

1/10/10 -- I am no longer able to purchase 'Cloth of Gold' yarrow commercially. Therefore, I will only be able to offer my own harvest.   I usually have a huge harvest, but I hate cleaning the seeds, so I am offering 20 seeds 'cleaned'; or 50+ seeds 'uncleaned' which means they come chaff and all and I do not count them.   In the 'uncleaned' seeds, you will most likely receive 100 to 300 seeds, and I always tape a couple of the seeds to the packet so that you can identify them.
Germination: Easy germination. Best started indoors. Surface sow on good seed starting mix at 70°F. Gently press seeds into mix - do not cover seeds with mix. Moisten mix and keep moist until germination begins. Seed should begin germinating in 7-10 days.
