Min Qty: 0.5 g

Description: Annual with delicate daisy-like flowers that are popular in a mellow tea. Makes a nice addition to a cottage garden. Plants grow to 2' high and self seed.

Planting Instructions: 65 days. Direct seed onto a prepared bed of a fertile, sandy loam with good drainage after the danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed. Chamomile seeds require sunlight to germinate, so do not cover. Keep evenly moist until seedlings emerge in 10-14 days. Harvest flowers when in full bloom, starting around 60 days.
