Chamomile, Bodegold

Chamomile, Bodegold

Matriciaria recutita.

NEW for 2014! Bodegold is an improved German variety of chamomile with higher essential oil content, higher yields, larger flowers, & more uniform habit. White flowers with fragrant yellow centers. Chamomile is commonly used as a calming herbal tea & is said to stimulate the immune system. Flowers are ready to pick & dry when petals have fallen off. Very attractive to pollinators. This is one of our favorite medicines & tea herbs. It should be in every garden. The compact plants grow to 12-24" & seeds are best direct sown, scattered on the soil surface. Strangely, chamomile seems to grow better in poor quality soil.

Packet ≈ 500 seeds. $3.50
