Best time to plant out side is spring March- April and early autumn September - I have been selling this compact low growing hybrid variety of chamomile for 8 years and the results are always good. Requirements for best results 1. Sunny open south facing location (shade will result in taller untidy plants) 2. Free draining soil 3. No rabbits as apparently they find chamomile delicious.
DO NOT ORDER if you are not going to be at home or unable to collect the plants quickly from the delivery office as it is unreasonable to demand refunds for plants neglected by customers. The plants require a customer signature and i am not happy to advise that they are left with a neighbour due to previous bad experiences. Sorry for any inconvenience.
The plants are non- flowering cannot be grow from seed and are the most suitable low maintenance type of chamomile used for lawns and ornamental features. Roman chamomile is often sold as lawn chamomile which has flowers and tall stems. It grows from seeds but is not ideal as it needs constant clipping to keep under control unlike this low growing hybrid variety which is used by garden designers in schools hospitals and stately homes. ( trays ready now with well developed roots and healthy leaves) Grown outside and ready to be planted outside on arrival .
Apple scented low creeping hardy dwarf hybrid treneague plants. Low maintenance and do not require mowing or clipping. Perfect for ornamental lawns, seating and green roof structures as they are drought tolerant and fully hardy once established.
New chamomile lawns should not be walked on for at least 12 weeks, and traffic should be kept to an absolute minimum for the first year. The plants will be sent in the tray inside a recycled box wrapped in newspaper slight damage may occur to the leaves but this will not effect growth. The plants propagate from damaged leaves pushed into the ground when walked upon. Local collection welcome. I will post Monday-Wednesday to avoid weekend delays. (Last orders 11 am Wednesday)
Plant in a sunny sheltered spot outside into sandy free draining soil/compost or greenhouse/ cool window sill as they will need to be protected from frost until established if planted in early spring .
quotation from Chuang-Tze 360 BC: "Once upon a time, I, Chuang Chou, dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly, unaware that I was Chou. Soon I AWAKED, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man. "
