Propagating by cuttings

From Late Spring TO Early Summer

In late Spring, take 75mm long cuttings and insert straight into the the soil wherever you want more chamomile. Water in and mulch with fine stone chippings. It will look very scruffy to start with but soon take root and knit together

 

Planting young plants

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

Plant and grow on in sunny, free-draining conditions. It is ideal in rockeries, planting in paving cracks or alongside pathways to soften edges. An open, sunny site is best for a chamomile lawn. Light dappled shade is acceptable, but if it is grown in more shade, its cover will be quite patchy. A sandy loam is preferred but avoid very dry, stony conditions, as some moisture is necessary and it will not tolerate heavy soils like clay. Space plants 10 - 20cm apart to create a lawn, closer for rapid ground cover.

 

Propagating by division

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

The plants can be divided easily by digging them up and pulling off pieces with a root, and re-planting the divisions.

 

Flowering

From Mid Summer TO Late Summer

Flowering varieties of chamomile varieties bloom in mid to late Summer - but not all varieties flower
