This flower looks attractive—Yarrow plant, easy to grow a plant at home with minimum caring. The scientific name of the yarrow plant is Achillea millefolium, and it comes with the Asteraceae family.

Simple Way to Prepare a Soil Mixture & Planting :
To make a soil potting, take well-drained garden soil (50%), coco peat (30%), and vermicompost (20%). Mix it well and bring a clay flower pot (at least 6 to 8 inches). Fill the soil mixture in the flower pot and spray water properly (Any soil air removed from the pot).
Remember while planting: Soil mixture should be sandy or loamy type and USDA hardiness zone 3 to 8. In a flowerpot, make sure drainage holes are available on the surface of the pot. If there are no drainage holes then, make 5 to 7 holes( it’s necessary).
Now take the seeds and sprinkle them over the soil potting and cover the seeds with the same soil mixture. Now give water to the pot (don’t overwater) and keep the pot in the semi-shaded area or indoor location. Within 15 to 20 days, sprouting starts from the seeds, and tiny leaves (size grows to 2 to 4 mm) appear from the plants.
