First grown in America in the late 1700s, German Chamomile (Nepeta cataria) is known for its euphoric effect on cats and is a mild sedative for humans. Bushy plants spread up to 3-feet when mature. Drought-tolerant once established. (Perennial in zones 3-4) 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!
