Chamomile Growing Tips and Advice

Two main types of chamomile exist: German Chamomile and Roman Chamomile. The first is an annual that grows to about 2-3 feet, while the second is a perennial that grows to be about 4-12 inches. Both varieties of chamomile reseed themselves, so you don’t need to plant too often. Chamomile also enhances the growth of any nearby plants. This herb also loves full or partial shade or sun and moist, well drained earth.


Organic fertilizers are a great way to improve the quality of your soil, which is the first step to successful herb gardening.

Planting Chamomile

To grow chamomile, scatter the chamomile seeds and do not cover them with soil. If you start with chamomile plants, plant them in your garden only after the last frost. This herb likes to spread itself (sometimes rather easily), so it doesn’t favor containers.

The Green Chronicle offers a chamomile tea recipe as well as additional information about this herb.
