Planting and Care Instructions
Chamomile enjoys full sun and to be watered 1-2 times a week (don't let it dry out though!). Split the roots apart into 3 or 4 tufts 8 inches apart to acheive better ground cover. Harvest flower tops periodically and store in a cool dry place. Grind up flowers for loose leaf tea.
Mint likes partial to full sun and to be watered 3 times per week. Plant in a container as mint can become invasive when not kept in check. Take biggest leaves and never more than 1/3 of the plant.
Lemon Balm enjoys full sun and being watered only 1-2 times per week depending on temperature. Plant it tightly (up to 4 per square foot). Harvest biggest leaves to add lemon flavour to a dish or leave to dry. Grind up to use as a loose leaf tea.
