Transplanting achillea ptarmica 'nobelssa'

garystpaul(4)April 11, 2014

I had good germination, after which about two dozen were transplanted into a flat. I'm ready to pot up into small square pots. I'm wondering if any of you ever put a couple seedlings together to make a sort of mini-clump to start out with, once they're ready to be set out in the garden. Or would these achilleas do better growing as singles?

Many thanks.

They clump and grow well together. I normally transplant them in clumps of 3-4 (mostly 4) into 4" pots and then group pots of 3-4 together in the garden.

Singles will grow ok but just don't look right to me - too lonesome and spindly looking alone. I want to see more blooms than green growth. So it is just an appearance issue.

Thank you, Dave. Just the kind of information I was hoping for.
