Many people swear by homegrown chamomile tea to calm their nerves. This cheery herb can add beauty to a garden and may have sedative qualities. German Chamomile growing in the garden is both useful and visually pleasing. German Chamomile grows best in cool conditions and should be planted in part shade, but will also grow full sun. The soil should be dry. Once your German chamomile is established, it needs very little care. Like most herbs, chamomile grows best when it is not fussed over. Too much fertilizer will result in lots of weakly flavoured foliage and few flowers. German Chamomile is drought tolerant and only needs to be watered in times of prolonged drought. For the most part, chamomile is not affected by many pests. It is often recommended as a companion plant to plant in the vegetable garden as its strong scent often keeps pests away. That being said, a chamomile plant weakened by lack of water or other issues may be attacked by aphids, mealybugs or thrips.
