Chamomile Seed Set (4 packets): Chamomile–Dyer’s, German, Roman and Saint John’s, Organic

$11.90

Family:  Aster (Asteracea)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 8.  German chamomile is an annual, 90 days to harvest.

Annual or perennial herbs native to Europe and the Mediterranean.  These are used in tea making and as dyestuffs. They all are best sown in the very early spring. It is best to direct-seed the German, and the dyer’s, Roman and Saint John’s do well started first in pots and then transplanted.  Prepare a pot or flat of soil or a fine seedbed, sprinkle the seed on it, work in shallowly with your fingers, tamp securely, and keep evenly moist until germination, which takes only a few days.  Thin or transplant to 6 inches to a foot apart.

      Hi 🙂
      When you say plant early spring, assuming out in the meadow, can that be while there is still chance of frost ? (Zone 9a/b, NoCal). And are these drought tolerant at all once established ? Thankyou

      Hi, the chamomiles are early spring growers, are not at all bothered by late frosts, and in many cases flower prior to the drought of summer. I found the Roman Chamomile to be less drought-tolerant this year than I remembered, and a large planting looked good only after side-dressing with moisture-retentive coir. Richo

      Is St John’s Chamomile the same as St John’s wort?

      Hello, no, it isn’t. Saint John’s Wort is Hypericum, in a completely different family from chamomile. r
