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.

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.
