This is an annual plant and will need to be allowed to ‘self seed’ to be permanent in the garden.
The flowers of German Chamomile share most of the properties of Chamaemelum nobile, or English Chamomile.
It re-seeds itself generously once planted you are unlikely to need to source seeds again.
The chamomile tea made from infusing the dried or fresh flowers is, actually, quite a calming tea, although excess intake can lead to weakened stomach muscles.
It seems to work on the digestive system by soothing nervous stress.
Plant at most times of the year in Australia but the best results are normally in the cooler months.
Chamomile is also the base for our “Snoreless’ Homeopathic remedy using a 1C potency.
