Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
Ever since the Middle Ages, Chamomile Tea has been a worldwide favorite, often used as a relaxation herb. (It's also the national flower of Russia.)

The little white daisy-like flowers make your herb garden beautiful and the scent is even better. Also, chamomile is great for soap-making.

Chamomile forms a bushy plant with very attractive fern-like foliage. The tea is made from drying the flowers when in full bloom. (See below.)

When and Where to Plant: Sow seeds in sandy, well-drained soil, with a little organic matter, in full sun or light shade, as soon as soil can be worked in the Spring. Rich soil will cause poor flower production.
Care: Keep well drained. Keep soil weed free and moist, but not soggy.
Harvesting: Pick flowers in full bloom, on a sunny day. Spread them to dry on a cloth or screen in the sun. Remove leaf and stem pieces. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place.

    Comments about American Meadows Chamomile Seeds:

    I tried sprouting these in an container outside in the winter, and believe it or not, it didn't take. Then I started it (later) inside an old plastic egg carton under a garage light, and what do you know? It sprouted. The seeds are extremely small so small they slipped out of the packet after I resealed it, but I know the company can't change the seed size, so great over all.
