German Chamomile

Chamomile is a mild, soothing and calming herb,
with small, sweet-smelling, daisy-like flowers.
Make yourself a cup of chamomile tea (from
the dried flowers) for its many therapeutic
properties including nervous digestion, insomnia
and as a wash for minor wounds.
Its scent gives pleasure to both the mind and
body either as a tea or for use in bath herbs.
Chamomile is quite easy to grow from seed,
it germinates quite readily (as seen in the above
picture). At our farm, we grow German
Chamomile 'Bodegold' which is know for
its large blossoms and high yielding plants.
This season include this herb for your garden!!
