Growing herbs from seed is so easy!
Grow them in the border among your flowers, in a special herb bed, or simply in pots by the back door. You can even grow some on your kitchen windowsill. They are easy to dry and even easier to freeze.
Chamomile produces pretty daisy-like flowers with yellow centres and feathery foliage, with an apple fragrance when crushed.
Makes a delicious soothing tea!

How to Guide
Rake soil to provide a firm, even surface. Sow seeds thinly in pre-watered soil, lightly covering them with a little more soil.
Sowings made in semi-circular lines create a natural 'drift' effect. Keep moist until seedlings appear and as required in dry spells.
Potting on/Thining Out
When large enough to handle, thin seelings to allow their development and to prevent overcrowding.
