Weeds. Chamomile is a gentle plant and doesn't compete with grass and weeds in your garden. So, you will need to control them. You will be rewarded for protecting your gentle chamomile from the tougher and bigger folk for years to come.
You can grow a chamomile lawn using turf, seeds, seedlings or plugs.
Preparing the area for seeding or planting a chamomile lawn really is the same as for a grass lawn. Dig the area, remove all weeds and as many larger stones as you can. Then, dig in well rotted organic compost.

You may also want to try growing chamomile under and around a garden seat, or in and around a pathway. The fragrant aroma will be released each time the seat is used and the pathway is walked on!
Planting a Chamomile lawn using seedlings or from seed.
Plant chamomile seedlings 15cm apart. Or sow organic compost in seed trays, treating them the same as any seedlings by thinning out and planting when the chamomile has grown into small plants.
Sowing Chamomile seed directly onto a prepared bed.
When preparing the soil, make sure to rake the top as fine as you can. German chamomile is easy to start from seed. Wait until the weather warms up a bit and the frosts are gone. Chamomile seed needs light to germinate, so simply scatter the seed and press firmly onto the soil, but do not cover the seed with soil. Seeds should germinate in seven to fourteen days. Most seed packs come with full instructions.
Caring and looking after a newly seeded camomile lawn.
Water the chamomile lawn until the plants have starting spreading and becoming established. At this stage with your lawn-mower blades on the highest setting give it its first cut. Thinner patches can be replanted with saved seedlings.
Unpack your plug plants as soon as they arrive and water them. Don't worry if some of the compost has become loose.
Garden-ready plugs can be planted out straight away, if it’s warm enough. Or grown on for a few weeks in a large pot, for sturdier roots.
