Agrimony prefers full sunlight, but can handle part shade. Most types of average, well-drained soil, including dry and alkaline soil would be ideal for growing. As such overwatering should be avoided, with agrimony only really needing to be watered when the soil is dry.
You can plant agrimony seeds directly in the garden after all dangers of frost have passed, or if you want to get a head start you can start seeds indoors a few weeks ahead of time. Afterwards, transporting them to the garden once the temperatures rise. Allow at least 12 inches between each seedling. Seeds will take 2-3 weeks to germinate.
