Sowing Guide

Early Sowing/Module Sowing

Chamomile seeds are best sown direct.

Direct Sowing

Scatter the seeds over a well prepared seedbed in spring where the plants are to flower. The soil should be a fine tilth.
Tamp down the area lightly with a hoe or the back of a spade.
Water well.
Thin the seedlings to 30 cm apart.

Growing On

Water the young plants well until established.
Young plants can be slow to grow at first. Weed regularly to keep competing plants under control.
Established plants need watering frequently in dry weather.
German chamomile will self seed if allowed with new seedlings growing back in the spring.


The flowers are ready to be harvested when the plants are in full bloom.
Use a chamomile rake or if preferred use scissors or garden shears to harvest.
Leave a few flowers on the plants if you wish them to self seed and grow back next spring.
Dry the flowers in a dehydrator or if preferred sprinkle the daisy-like flowers thinly onto some cloth and leave to dry in the sun.
Store the fully dried flowers in an airtight container for later use.


If you prefer the plants not to self seed ensure all flowers are harvested before they start to form seeds.
