      Chamomile seeds are too small for birds. other seeds (like clover for instance) can really attract birds. You can prepare a seedbed, scatter the seeds, tamp firmly then cover with a little straw if you want to confuse the bieds. very thin sprinkling of straw, the chamomile won’t want a thick mulch

      Chamomile is an easy spring annual, it grows throughout the temperate zone.

      Hello Luna,
      Thanks for your inquiry. The current lot of German Chamomile seed was tested 12/19 to 89%. I also tested it practically, when I sowed a medium-sized bed in early March. Checked it out yesterday and it is up and running! We have an old joke around here that it only comes up in the dog tracks, because it absolutely must be tamped in order to germinate, and our old dog Flo demonstrated this to us one year when she walked across the bed and the chamomile only came up in her tracks. So when my wife saw this year’s chamomile coming up, she said “dog tracks?” and I said, “my hand prints.” And she said “no difference,” which just show you how much like a dog she thinks I am.
