GROWING INSTRUCTIONS

These pretty, petite flowers are synonymous with a good night’s sleep. The dainty white daisy-like blooms are adorable as a garden border and just happen to have a delicately delicious flavour when brewed as a bedtime tea.

Seeds can be started indoors six weeks before the last frost. Sow seeds on the surface of your planting medium and gently press them in to initiate contact. Do not cover the seeds as they will need light to germinate. Mist the tiny seeds well and keep moist, they should germinate in 1-2 weeks.

Because chamomile prefers not to be transplanted, use compostable peat or coco pots. Direct sowing is also possible. Sow seeds or transplant pots into the garden when the threat of frost has passed. Select a site that receives full sun and your chamomile should thrive and bloom happily without any special attention. Seedlings need to be kept moist, but established plants will become much more drought tolerant.

About 90-120 days after planting, your chamomile will be ready to harvest. A good indication is when the petals begin to curl away from the center of the flower. Choose dry, sunny days to harvest continually throughout the season and enjoy the many of your chamomile’s fragrant flowers. 

QUICK FACTS

- Chamomile has a long and rich history, dating back to ancient Egyptians.

- Chamomile stimulates weight loss and also reduces bloating to a great extent. Loaded with calcium, potassium and flavonoids, chamomile's ability to detox the body helps in getting rid of toxins and excess water.

- Chamomile seeds will remain viable for 2 years if stored in a cool, dark place, ideally between 4 and 10⁰C. After that, the germination rate may start to go down.

OUR SEED GUARANTEE

You know that a lush, fruitful garden needs good soil, frequent watering, and sunlight to grow, but it’s the seeds that really make the harvest.

Picked and bagged for 2022, the vast majority of our seeds have germination rates of over 85%. The seeds are all-natural, non-GMO, non-hybrid, untreated, and open-pollinated for seed saving.

We have put a lot of thoughts into the design and packaging of our seed packets. Our seeds are all carefully packed in food grade kraft paper/aluminium zipper lock bags, and then are shipped in eco-friendly padded mailers.

We heat-seal each of our seed packet for even more protection from moisture, odour and light, allowing you to store your seeds for up to 3x longer than paper or plastic. Plant them all, germinate some indoors, save some for next season - it’s up to you!
