This cheery herb adds beauty to a garden and may have sedative qualities. Chamomile growing in the garden is both useful and visually pleasing. There are two kinds of chamomile. The first is Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) and the other is German chamomile (Matricaria recutita). The Roman variety is the true chamomile and is very popular for making tea.
Chamomile grows best in cool conditions and should be planted in part shade, but will also grow full sun. The soil should be dry. Once your chamomile is established, it needs very little care. Like most herbs, chamomile grows best when it is not fussed over. Too much fertilizer will result in lots of weakly flavored foliage and few flowers.
I am very happy with my recent purchase of the wild Bergamot and the Romane chamomille. Both plants were packed very well for the shippment. I was amazed with the idea they came up with to protect the bergamot’s few, pretty long trailing branches by using the spiral wood chips wrapped around the stems! The plants were both very healthy. They arrived in plastic planters that were placed face to face and separated with the spiral wood chips inside the cardboard box. The shipment was quite fast. I have already planted them in a sunny spot of my garden and hopefully they will feel as happy as I do :) Thank you very much, I would definitely recommend this nursery to my friends.
