Yarrow… pretty AND practical

Now, how many of you saw the title and immediately had to search for the definition of yarrow? Anyone? Anyone? Okay, maybe it was just me, but thankfully I have one of our campus plant experts, and his wealth of plant knowledge to set me on the right path. Adrian joins us today not only to tell us about this versatile flower, but to show us how to properly harvest and dry flower clusters. If you watch the video in its entirety, you might even see how yarrow brings out the excitement in passers-by. [Everyone wants to be a star.]

Green tip: you can harvest yarrow by the individual cluster or the entire plant. In order to maintain a sustainable Cornucopia, we ask that you limit your harvesting to leave plenty for everyone.
