Wildflower - Corn Chamomile
Corn chamomile are lovely plants for a sunny well-drained border, covered with bright, single daisy-like flowers with yellow centres throughout the summer . The flowers are complemented by attractive ferny grey-green foliage.
Plants will self seed easily, making this an ideal plant for naturalised planting, wild flower meadows or just a wild part of your garden.
|When to Sow||March to May and August to October.|
|Where to Sow||Sow direct outdoors in flowering position in a well prepared, weed free bed.|
|Water the area prior to sowing.|
|How to Sow||Mix the seed with some dry sand prior to sowing ( this will make it easier to spread and to see where it has been sown).|
|Sow by hand, distributing the seed/sand mixture evenly over the area.|
|If you want a more orderly display, sow seeds in rows of straight lines or, curves for a more natural effect.|
|What to do Next||Water well until established|
|Once the chamomile have finished flowering, leave a few plants to die down and self seed. Others can be pulled up and composted.|
|Flowering period||June to September|
