Organic German Chamomile
Self-Sowing Annual | 60-65 days to harvest | Marticaria recutita
The flavor of chamomile, rich and sweet, harvested fresh from your garden, simply cannot be compared to the dull dust sold in teabags.
And she’s so easy to grow! Chamomile thrives in even the most compacted soils and is perfect for many permaculture-style perennial gardens, readily re-seeding herself season after season.
