Flowers make a delicious, fragrant tea


These flowers make a wonderful tea, nothing like you can buy in stores.

Never need to buy your bedtime tea again!


This is an amazing tea plant, flower, pollinator haven. I planted this once in my community garden and now I won't have to buy store chamomile for the rest of my life. This plant is so incredibly prolific that we get enough to satisfy the need for a family of two with sleeping difficulties with an entire year's supply of sleepytime tea!
The only thing you need in addition to one of these seed packets is a bulk food dehydrator.

Pretty Flowers


I’ve always been very happy with SeedSavers seeds & the German Chamomile are no exception. I started my seeds indoors February 10th, great germination and I had blooms into the first week of March. We’re in Northeast Ohio, so it’s too cold to harden off/transplant yet, but these are growing well indoors & very pretty. Looking forward to having a cup of my own Chamomile tea next fall/winter.
