PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Chamaemelum nobile 'Flore Pleno'|
|Double flowered Chamomile|
|New variety - highly recommended!|
|Delightful in all respects, this highly scented perennial chamomile has feathery leaves and inch-wide, creamy-white double flowers. Best planted in containers or at the edge of borders, where, when brushed against, both leaves and flowers release their strong, sweet, apple-like fragrance. NOTE: Depending on season, plants are sometimes supplied as bare-rooted clumps.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|A very easy plant to grow and maintain. Plant in any reasonable soil. Some recommend dead-heading to encourage new blooms, but I have always found that it flowers copiously when left to its own devices - just trim back if the plant becomes too untidy. Anthemis nobilis is easy to raise from cuttings - simply heel in small pieces of stem in winter or spring and you should expect good-sized, flowering plants by summer.|
