Planting Instructions:


Soil Preparation:

Remove weeds, large rocks, and litter from the planting area. Till the soil 8-10 inches deep and rake several times to break up large clods. It is best to do this when the soil is dry enough to not stick to garden tools. Loosening the soil will help the plant establish strong roots. Chamomile can tolerate a wide range of soils, but it is best to avoid rich, heavy, and damp soils.


Optionally, start indoors in containers 4-6 weeks before last frost. Keep seedlings >70F. Harden off then transplant to, or sow, in fertile, moist, well-draining soil in full sun after all frost passes in Spring. Keep moist.

Planting Depth: 1/4 inch
10 inches


Care During the Season:

Watering: Water the plants to keep soil moist but not flooded. Watering well during bloom periods can increase flower yields.
Weeding: Weeding and hoeing once 1 month after transplanting, may be enough, as the plant, once established, will stifle weeds.
Insecticides: Insecticides may be used to protect plants. Bt-based insecticides and sulfur are organic options that can be used for prevention. Sulfur also has fungicidal properties and helps in controlling many diseases. Neem oil and insecticidal soaps are good ways to control for pests. Before using a pesticide, read the label and always follow cautions, warnings and directions.


Harvest Chamomile flowers at the near full bloom stage for the best quality, by plucking with fingers or using devices such as pluck combs or comb shovels. For long-term storage, dry Chamomile using heat <100F within 2 hours of harvesting.
