Chamomile is a very easy plant to grow and makes a great plant for the back of rock gardens! Also known as Kamille or Mayweed. Annual.

How to Grow

9600 seed/gram. Sow seed directly outdoors in a sunny site with average soil in mid-to-late May - do not cover the seed. Seed can also be started indoors in a soil-less mix 6-8 weeks before last frost date. Keep temperature at 21 C (70 F) for the 7-10 day germination period, then grow on at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting outside after the danger of frost has passed. Sow seed 3 mm (1/8") deep and 2.5 cm (1") apart then thin to 15 cm (6") apart in the garden. Prefers well-drained to sandy soils in full sun.
