Dainty sunny blooms that fill the air with gorgeous fragrance as you walk past and can be collected fresh or dried for tea. In our Level Zero Flowers for Pollinators project, October is the month to plant them, but any time in Spring is fine. Harvesting the edible blooms will encourage even more flowers. Be sure to leave some on at the end of the season though, and they will go to seed by themselves, and become cheery volunteers in your garden.  Lovely. There are about 1000 tiny seeds in your packet, by weight – they are seriously tiny seeds.

Variety:  Matricaria chamomilla *Please note that Chamomile seeds cannot be sent to Western Australia.

Planting: Plant direct into the soil, between especially your cucumbers, zucchini and melons, with which chamomile loves to spend time, in full sun. Water in lightly with a gentle Shower on your pattern Sprayer. 📺 GO HERE to see how to sow teeny-tiny seed.

Growth: Grows to about 50cm high and 30cm wide, at it’s most robust, though often smaller once self-sown and flowers begin about 2 months after planting.

Edible Blooms: Chamomile blooms smell divine, as does the seed. Collect blooms for a fresh, calm afternoon tea, or dry for later use.
