Germination: Start your German Chamomile journey by sowing seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Use a seed tray or small pots filled with a well-draining, seed-starting mix. Sprinkle the seeds on the surface and gently press them into the soil without covering them, as they need light to germinate. Maintain a temperature of 18-20°C (65-68°F) and keep the soil moist but not soggy. Expect germination in 7-14 days.
Growing: Once the seedlings develop two sets of true leaves, transplant them to a sunny or partially shaded location in well-draining soil with a pH of 6.0-7.0. Space the plants about 15-30 cm (6-12 inches) apart, allowing ample room for growth. Water regularly but avoid overwatering, as German Chamomile prefers slightly dry conditions.
Harvesting: German Chamomile typically blooms from late spring to early summer. Harvest the flowers when fully open, on a dry, sunny day, and preferably in the morning after the dew has evaporated. Carefully snip off the flower heads using scissors or your fingers. To ensure a continuous harvest, pick the flowers every few days!
Uses: German Chamomile boasts a plethora of uses, from herbal teas to soothing skincare products. Known for its calming properties, it can help ease anxiety, insomnia, and gastrointestinal issues.
- Herbal Tea: Dry the harvested flower heads in a cool, dry place for a few days. Once dried, store them in an airtight container. Steep 1-2 teaspoons of dried flowers in hot water for a comforting cup of chamomile tea.
- Skincare: Incorporate dried flowers into DIY products such as creams, balms, and bath soaks for their anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing properties.
- Aromatherapy: Create a calming atmosphere using chamomile essential oil in a diffuser, or add it to massage oils for relaxation and stress relief.
- Culinary: Add a touch of floral elegance to your favorite dishes by incorporating fresh or dried flowers into salads, desserts, and even cocktails.
