German Chamomile (Matricaria Recutita Bodegold) 2000 seeds (#922)

Approximately 2000-2500 seeds in the packet (to sow on 4 sq.m. area)
'Bodegold', an improved chamomile variety, native from Eastern Germany where herbal remedies have been used for centuries. 'Bodegold' begins blooming several weeks earlier than other strains with abundant, uniform flowers.
Pick the little blossoms with their dainty white petals and gold centers and simply air dry for making fragrant pineapple-scented tea. Serve with a little honey to settle the stomach and soothe the nervous system before retiring. Start chamomile in early spring for sturdy growth before warm weather initiates flowering.
Harvest every few days just as the petite daisy-like flowers are fully open, but before the petals dry up. Air dry blossoms indoors in a single layer for several days, then store in a sealed container. Steep in boiling water for a lovely scented tea. Leave a few flowers in the garden to set seed, then shake spent plants and they will often self-sow to bloom next season.
Full sunlight or light shade. Good drainage. Poor soils. Provide a feed early in the growing season. Pinch tips. Deadhead to promote further blooming. Perennials should be cut back to the ground in autumn.
It is easy to maintain sweet Chamomile and other Matricaria plants in the garden. The young plants should be pinched back to encourage bushy growth, and they should be fed in the spring. Once the growing season has finished cut back the plants in the autumn, or ideally remove the old plants and let new ones grow from seeds the following year, for increased intensity.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Sow the seeds of sweet chamomile outdoors on the soil surface at the start of spring; chamomile should have a light frost for best germination. They can grow in either lightly shaded or sunny parts of the garden, but should have good drainage. The soil type should not be rich and sweet chamomile can grow in poor soils.
When starting to grow sweet chamomile seedlings indoors then start about 7 weeks in advance. It should take the seeds about one to three weeks to germinate at +18-+24C. Once ready, transplant into the garden at about 30 cm.
