German Chamomile Seeds

Organic, Heirloom

What could be more soothing than curling up at bedtime with a good book and a cup of chamomile tea made from flowers fresh from your garden? The flowers can also be dried for floral arrangements, pressed for crafts, or woven into charming wreaths, and their edible petals can be tossed into salads. In the garden, chamomile attracts beneficial insects and pollinators.

I forgot I bought these two years ago I found the package, in a drawer pulled it out and dropped them in my container they took off so pretty, I have not cut them back will do soon. Make sure you use a medium to large container I used a small container so they are very compact but still nice to look at.

Great Ground Cover

Germinated the seeds indoors and transplanted outside. Seeds germinated well and some transplants did okay. I had to resow a couple of times outside. They were a little slow to grow but once they did, BAM! they spread and grew a lot! Now I have a bunch of chamomile in the front yard. The white petals are not as prominent but they still look great. Hoping these may reseed to come back next year.
