Chamomile 'German' Seed Pack

Availability: In stock (3)

German chamomile is the annual herb many use for making calming, sleep-inducing teas. Give this plant full sun and for best results, sow seeds directly outdoors as soon as the soil can be worked, or 4 - 6 weeks prior to your average last frost date, in large pots or in the ground. Blooms appear continuously from spring into summer, so there is no real harvest date. Pick just the flowers (no stems) in the morning before the flowers open fully, then spread them out to dry, out of the direct sun, preferably without heat.
