Watering Roman chamomileTenere asciutto
To use these plants year round we can proceed with harvesting, in the spring or in the summer. The plants should be washed and dried well, then dehydrated, or frozen, to use them during the year. Water rarely, about once every 2-3 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down.

Generalities Roman chamomile
These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal. The Roman chamomile is small in size and 40 cm in height; in the autumn it assumes a greenwhite colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. The Roman chamomile have a one or two year development cycle.

Exposure Roman chamomilePosizione mezza ombra
It is advisable to position this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. The leaves of aromatic plants are used in the kitchen; if necessary let’s remember to use only agricultural parasiticides, and let’s follow the lacking period indicated on the label: if we spray a plant we can ‘t use its leaves for alimentary use for the period of time indicated, when the chemical product is harmful.The Roman chamomile can't stand temperatures below zero; they should be grown in cold green houses or at least in a place where they are sheltered by the wind; when every risk of late freezings has gone by we can place them outside or remove the protections.

Treatments Roman chamomile
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
