A favorite for herbal teas! German Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) has a soothing fragrance and a profusion of small daisy-like flowers that are popular in many tea blends. Plants grow to 12-20 inches tall. CERTIFIED ORGANIC.
Each packet contains approximately 250 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plants thrive in full sun, adequate moisture and well-drained soils. Direct sow after all danger of frost has passed, or start indoors 4-6 weeks prior to the last frost of spring. Space seedlings 8-10 inches apart and keep moist — do not allow the soil to dry out!
To harvest, cut the flowers — when in full bloom — with a pair of garden snips. Flowers can be used fresh or dried. A soothing cup of tea can be made using 1 tsp dried flowers or 2 tsp fresh blossoms. Enjoy!
