Site Selection

German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) is an annual herb while Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) is perennial. Both types prefer full sun to partial shade and do best in well-drained soil.

Cultivation

Chamomile seed can be started indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Transplant outdoors once the danger of frost has passed. Optimal soil temperatures for germination are 65-85°F. Sow seeds 3-4" apart on the soil surface and press lightly to settle. Seeds will germinate in 7-14 days. Thin seedlings so mature plants are 4-6" apart. Seed can also be direct seeded outdoors once the danger of frost has passed.

Harvest

Harvest chamomile while plants are flowering (60-90 days). Remove flowers only by hand or snip flowers with 2-3" of stem intact. Chamomile flowers and flowering tops can be used fresh or dried in teas, salads, or to decorate cakes.
