Winter care of Chamomile

midnight51October 10, 2009

I think I may have trimmed my Chamomile garden too early - I now have a huge patch of new Chamomile seedlings where I trimmed the old down to about 6". Did I trim too early in the season? Will the plant still reseed next year or should I cover with mulch now?

Don't worry about chamomile midnight. It should be just fine. I'm in zone 5 and chamomile comes back with a vigor, even if it is coming up now. It really wants to grow and loves the cool weather.

Great - that is reassuring. I am zone 5 also - should I still cover lightly with a bit of mulch for winter cover or is this unnecessary?

Thanks,
Josh

German or Roman? One is an annual but if you have it there are probably enough seeds left to come up next year.
