Growing Advice

How to grow your seeds.

Direct sow chamomile seed outdoors from April to July in light, well-drained, soil, which has been raked to a fine tilth. Choose a position in full sun. Sow seed thinly at a depth of 1cm (1/2″) in rows 30cm (12″) apart. When chamomile plants are large enough to handle, thin seedlings to 15cm (6″) apart.

Harvest flowers regularly to encourage the formation of more.
