How to grow Chamomile

Chamomile grows best in sun or semi-shade and moist, light, well drained soil. It does not seem to last long in dry summer areas, and brass buttons (Cotula squalida) is often substituted for it there. Sow seeds in the early spring or late fall. Once plants are established they will spread by runners and can be divided for additional plantings.[1]
