  • Lets talk about them



    You cannot go wrong with growing this matricaria - it literally suits every single colour palette. It's super easy to grow, and naturally long branching stems. It reminds me of little sponges.

  • How to make these beauties grow



    Sow: Autumn or Early spring 6-8 weeks before the last frost.


    How:  Surface sow and cover very lightly. Autumn sown plants protect from heavy frost as young seedlings are frost tender (ideally in a greenhouse or cold frame).


    Space: 20-30cm  


    Height: 60 - 100 cm   


    Where: Full Sun


    Days to maturity: 100-120 Days


    Pick: When nearly all the flowers are open, and at the coolest time of the day - feverfew can be particularly wilty (don't worry it usually bounces back after 24hrs). Can also be dried.


    Hardy Annual - (or tender perennial in some areas)



  • Notes From The Garden



    Autumn sown plants produce substantially taller plants (and alas longer stems for cutting!). Cut back after the 1st flush for a decent 2nd flush, although it is often shorter. 


    Matricaria can be notoriously fickle to germinate - I've tested these seeds 3 times and had fantastic germination each time. I've found these seeds like to be on the warmer side to germinate (use a heat mat if sowing early spring, or a warm sunny place if autumn sowing).
