Organic Herb: Chamomile Planting Instructions:

Chamomile has a 60 day grow time and prefers full sun. Start your Chamomile plants 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost by planting 1/2 inch deep and 18" apart. Make sure the plants get plenty of light, either natural or provided by a fluorescent light for 16 hours per day. After 2 to 3 weeks, seedlings should emerge. Harden the seedlings before transplanting by moving them to a sheltered place outside for a week. Once fully transplanted, ensure that weeds are kept under control and that the plants receive about 1" of water per week. The soil should be moist, but not saturated.

Organic Herb: Chamomile Harvesting Instructions:
When the Chamomile flower petals arch backward, they are ready for harvest. Remove the leaves and stems from the harvested flowers and spread the flower on a window screen or cheesecloth in the shade. Once thoroughly dry, store the flowers in a tightly sealed glass jar in a dry, dark location such as a cupboard.
