Chamomile, Bodegold by Renee's Garden
Flowering Herbs: Bodegold Chamomile
Our improved chamomile variety is imported from Germany where herbal teas and remedies have been used for centuries. Bodegold begins blooming several weeks earlier than other strains and produces abundant flowers. Pick the little blossoms with their dainty white petals and gold centers and simply air dry for making fragrant pineapple-scented tea. Serve with a little honey to settle the stomach and soothe the nervous system before retiring.
TO START DIRECTLY IN THE GARDEN
Sow seeds as thinly as possible in a well-drained, finely textured garden bed in full sun and cover lightly. Keep evenly moist while awaiting germination. Thin seedlings to 4 inches apart before they become crowded.
TO START INDOORS
Sow seeds in early spring in a container of seed starting mix. Cover seeds very lightly and keep evenly moist until seedlings emerge. Provide a good light source until seedlings are about 2 inches tall. Transplant 4 inches apart after gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions. Don’t let seedlings get too big or crowded before planting out.
