German Chamomile grows best in a sunny location in the garden but can tolerate some shade. It can grow in containers but may become top heavy, so larger containers are recommended. Once established, Chamomile is pretty drought tolerant and trouble free.
By starting your own medicinal herb garden this growing season you are taking one more step toward empowering youself to treat symptoms of the common cold, little skin irritations, a few chronic conditions, and minor bumps and bruises.
Planting Tips: Plant in full sun and provide a decent well drained soil. Fertilize in early spring with a top dressing of compost and bone meal. Liquid feed twice during the summer with fish emulsion or seaweed extract. Lavender must be grown in dry soils - it will not tolerate wet feet. To improve your soils drainage, add pea gravel or sand.
