How to grow

How To Grow Roman Chamomile From Seed: Sow Roman Chamomile seeds in spring after danger of frost in a weed-free prepared seedbed. Sow the herb seeds on the surface of the soil and lightly cover with peat moss. Keep the seeds moist until germination occurs.

Roman Chamomile plants may deteriorate in very cold or wet winters, but they will most likely recover. Harvest chamomile flowers when they are first fully opened. Use them fresh or freeze them for later use. Another benefit is that the flowers are used in herbal teas and are said to have medicinal properties.

Flower Specifications

Roman Chamomile holds soil in place even on slopes, it spreads to fill in gaps, and it blocks out most weeds. It can be mowed (after flowering and set the mower on the highest setting), and it tolerates light foot traffic. This ground cover is unique, aromatic, drought tolerant, attractive and is well-suited for covering large areas and can be started by sowing the herb seeds.
