To grow German Chamomile, you will need:
Well-drained, sandy soil
Seeds or seedlings
Prepare the soil by tilling or digging to a depth of at least 8 inches. Add compost or other organic matter to improve the soil's fertility.
Sow the seeds or transplant seedlings in the spring or fall, after the last frost date. Space the plants about 12 inches apart, and cover with 1/4 inch of soil.
Water the chamomile regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Fertilize the chamomile with an organic fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
Keep the chamomile free of weeds and remove any diseased or damaged leaves to help prevent disease.
Harvest the flowers when they are fully open and dry them for later use.
