Description

Chamomile tea is one of the greatest nightcaps, comforting and sleep-inducing. I’ve loved growing my own. This variety is prolific in its flower production and tastes delicious and strong, so you won’t need many flower heads for your evening mug of tea.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Roman chamomile is resistant to drought and will survive for some time without water. Harvest flowers regularly to encourage the formation of more.
