Chamomile needs to be dried on cloth or similar, as the strongest part of the flower, the yellow bit, tends to fall to pieces - you can hang it up in bundles, but you'll lose much of the strength of it. The herb is of course dried in a shady spot indoors. Annala, Helsinki, Finland. Picked. 2005-07-06.

Flowering plants. I don't know what they feed these plants, but they're huge. They're even bigger than the Tripleurospermums we have over here, and that's saying something. Nunobiki herb garden, Kobe, Japan. Planted. 2001-05-06.
