Camomile - Roman

     Chamaemelum nobile
is a perennial low camomile with a distinct scent of apple. It provides excellent ground-cover and can handle some tramping. Roman Camomile thrives in a cooler climate in full sun-light with its roots in limy soil. It bears fewer flowers than the common annual camomile does but they are used in the same way.

SOWING: Sow the tiny seeds shallowly indoors and set out when the risk of frost is over or sow directly outdoors in May-June.

SEEDS: 6500 seeds/g, one portion yields at least 100 seedlings.
