  • Position: full sun

    Forming a dense, creeping mat of aromatic leaves, which are topped with wonderful, white, daisy-like flowers in summer, this flowering chamomile is perfect for sunny, well-drained areas of the herb garden. A valuable medicinal herb, the flowers can be dried and used to make chamomile tea.

  • Garden care: When watering, it is best to give the plants a really thorough soak when the soil gets dry, rather than applying a little water every day.
