Care instructions Achilleas tolerates most soils but does best in a sunny well-drained site. Dislikes heavy water-logged clay soil. Cut down to the ground in late winter, but resist the urge to do this earlier, as the seed heads look lovely in the winter light. Pull out seedlings as they appear, as they rarely match the host plant. Lift and divide large clumps in late autumn or early spring.
