Chamomile - German


German Chamomile
Matricaria chamomilla 
c. 2000 seeds

Delicate and wistful with that delightful wildflower look. Children seem drawn to this plant with its faint pineapple smell and wonderful affect on their demeanour. Soothing for the skin, sleep, tummies and tantrums. Gorgeous in the garden.

Chamomile seed needs light to germinate, so simply scatter onto a tray and press down gently. Doesn’t require rich soil and isn’t too affected by pestly problems. Harvest the chamomile flowers when fully open. They can be used fresh as a tea or added to the bath and may be dried and stored for later use.
