Tansy is a hardy perennial that prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Drought tolerant once established.
Start seed indoors in spring and transplant outdoors once the danger of frost has passed. Sow seeds 1/8" deep and 4-6" apart. Seeds germinate best when soil temps are 65-80°F. Seeds will sprout in 21-28 days. Thin seedlings so that mature plants are 12-18″ apart.
Harvest above ground parts anytime during the growing season. Flowers and leaves are used dried in floral arrangements and potpourri.
