How to Grow Roman Chamomile Plants

Growing Roman Chamomile is a simple and rewarding endeavor. These plants thrive in well-drained soil and prefer a sunny location. Whether you decide to incorporate them amidst your vegetable garden, in raised beds filled with herbs, or in charming containers on your patio or balcony, Chamomile will flourish and add a touch of natural beauty to your space.

Harvesting Roman Chamomile is a delightful process. Wait until the flowers have fully opened, with the petals gently curving backward towards the center. Using pruning shears, carefully snip the flowers, capturing their delicate beauty in a bowl. It’s advisable to harvest no more than one-third of the leaves to ensure the plant’s continuous growth and health.

Once you have gathered the flowers, it’s time to dry them. Find a cool, dark space away from direct sunlight to allow the flowers to dry thoroughly. This process usually takes about two weeks. Stir them occasionally to ensure proper drying, and consider covering them with a breathable cloth like cheesecloth to protect them from dust. Once the flowers crumble easily when pressed, they are ready to be stored.

Introduce the gentle elegance and versatility of organic Roman Chamomile plants to your garden. Let their delicate flowers, captivating fragrance, and numerous practical uses enhance the tranquility and natural charm of your outdoor sanctuary.
