How to Grow Chamomile from Seeds
DIRECT SOW or TRANSPLANT
Chamomile grown outdoors prefers full sun but will tolerate some shade. If you use lamps Keep standard fluorescent lamps between 2 and 4 inches from the tops of the plants, high output and compact fluorescents approximately one foot above the plants, and HID lights between 2 and 4 feet above the plants, depending on wattage. Have an oscillating fan gently stir seedlings for at least 2 hours per day to stimulate shorter, sturdier, and more natural plant habit. Water on a regular schedule, taking care to not over water. Chamomile may be considered a noxious weed or invasive plant in some areas.
Chamomile is known to attract bees, butterflies or birds and has fragrant blossoms. Chamomile self-sows freely; remove flowers (deadhead) if you do not want volunteer seedlings the following season.
