Exposure Matricaria camomillaPosizione mezza ombra
Exposure of the medicinal plants. The the Matricaria camomilla should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.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.

Watering Matricaria camomillaTenere asciutto
We can use some medicinal plants in the kitchen, fresh; instead if we want to harvest them to use them dehydrated, let’s be sure about their balsamic period, meaning the period of the year in which every period has a higher quantity of active principles. 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.

Fertilization Matricaria camomilla
During this period of the year, our plants need a frequent fertilization, to guarantee a good quantity of nutritional substances, useful during the development of new vegetation. We can add a fertilizer rich in nitrogen to the irrigating water, every 15-20 days, or a granular slow release fertilizer, to add to the ground every 3-4 months.

Treatments Matricaria camomilla
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.

Soil Matricaria camomilla
We recommend growing these medicinal plants in a soft and light, very well drained soil.
