Chamomile is often grown for its fragrant properties and its pretty daisy like flowers. The plants have feather like leaves that release scent when crushed or brushed against, and together with its hardiness, is why it is a popular plant to have in a lawn or around garden seating. The flowers of chamomile can be made into tea.

Chamomile is grown from seed in spring, or bought as plants, and is perennial plant capable of surviving all weathers. If growing in pots, these should be watered regularly to prevent the roots drying out. Pruning the tops of the plants encourages bushy growth. Chamomile plants can be divided in autumn and the spring to provide more plants.
