Thinking about…

Tea

I am just sitting down to a wonderful cup of chamomile tea and I thought … wouldn’t it be good if I could grow this. Is it as simple as just the flowers? cause that is all I am putting in my tea ball, isn’t it?

The trusting internet says this is how to make chamomile tea.

There are two plants known as chamomile: the more popular German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) and Roman, or English, chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile). Although they belong to different species, they are used to treat similar conditions. Both are used to calm frayed nerves, to treat various digestive disorders, to relieve muscle spasms, and to treat a range of skin conditions and mild infections.

I think I will try and grow some German Chamomile sometime.
