Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) Herb Seeds

Roman Chamomile is also known as garden or English Chamomile and is a mat-forming evergreen plant. Chamaemelum nobile has tiny aromatic leaves and long stalked single daisy-like flowers, with yellow discs and creamy white petals. It can be cut as lawn, and it is better planted in a drift and certainly where it can be walked on, brushed past or crushed gently to allow the calming aroma to be released. Chamomile is a wonderful low growing plant (never gets higher than 30cm) that grows wild in the pastures and prairies, or where other grasses flourish. As a result, it is fully hardy and prefers well drained soils in full sun. 

Growing Instructions

Sow March-May into seed trays gently firm the seeds into the surface of good seed compost and thin when large enough to handle, transplanting into individual pots or planting out into a well prepared seed bed, once risk of frost has past.  Alternatively sow direct into a weed-free bed that has a very fine tilth, once risk of frost is past. Mix the seed with sand, and allowing one packet of seeds per square metre, distribute the seed. Leave uncovered and water in using a fine spray. Do not allow the soil to dry out, but do not over water. Protect the area from disturbance. Thin to 30cm (or 10-15cm if you want a more immediate effect), cut back the plants to encourage bushier growth. Water when soil gets dry and give a good soaking.

Herb Usage

Roman Chamomile is popularly used as a calming, stress relieving tea, chamomile also assists digestion and the flowers and leaves have been used for a range of complaints, from nappy rash to anger management. The essential oils are important in cosmetic products like conditioners, and also feature in the arsenal of the aromatherapist.
