We offer a special seed-grown strain of a very dwarf compact spreading form, not to be confused with the taller-growing herbal varieties of chamomile. Having said that, a light trim may be required four or five times a year especially, should ypur plants flower. You may also find that lightly rolling or treading the lawn as it settles in helps the chamomile to spread and establish quicker.

Ideal for sunbathing on since as you turn you will bruise the plants and thus release a soothing tincture of their healing natural juices. Caution though: their medicinal vapours may send you into a soothing sleep!,

  • Once established, thrives in hot sunny positions.
  • Thrives in a nutritious, well-drained, soil.
  • Never plant in waterlogged situations.
  • Plant from April to early September.
  • Plant 6" x 6" (15 x 15 cm) apart - that's 36 plants per square metre to metric people (or you can divide up our chunky plug plants and grow on in small pots before planting out).
  • Trim regularly to keep the foliage of the plants juvenile and soft.
  • If the lawn does grow tall to the point of flowering, reduce the height over a period of several cuts allowing the plants to recover in between.
  • Not suitable for areas where dogs may foul as their mess will kill it where it falls!

Uses

  • Makes a strong yellow-brown dye.
  • Can be used as a companion plant for failing plants and can help revive them!
  • Use as a spray on seedlings to prevent damping-off.
  • Use as a hand soak to soften skin.
  • Make into eye baths to reduce inflammation and fatigue shadows (or 'bags'!)
  • Can be used as a hair conditioner.
  • Make into tea.
  • Use in pot pourri and herb pillows.
  • Can be used to treat wounds and eczema.
  • Can be used in a bath to relieve sun or wind burn and bites. It will also help you relax.
  • Used as a facial steam and inhaled can ease colds, flus, throat infections and hayfever.
  • Deters flies and aphids.
