Chamomile cold extract | A plant-based spray used in organics and Biodynamics. Chamomile cold extract is derived from Chamomile flowers. Chamomile flowers are also used to make the Chamomile 503 compost preparation, one of nine preparations used by Biodynamic growers. Its application prevents rot and cryptogamic illness, especially in young plants.
How made | Roughly chop 150 grammes of dried flowers. Place in 1 litre of cold water in a covered pan and leave for two days. Filter before spraying.
