I have Chamomile growing in by rock driveway, but no where else. I would like more of it growing, but besides my veggie garden, don't water anything. Any thoughts on transplanting it to other environs on my land? Location is SW Washington, old dairy farm.

There's two main types of chamomile.  The annual and the perrenial.  The annual is usually tall and the perrenial is usually a short creeping ground cover.  The annual you are best gathering seed from and scattering it,  the perrenial sends out runners and can be transplanted.  I believe the annual likes sandy soil, though it can be grown in other types. The perennial I've seen grow in sandy and clay soils. I live in a moist climate,  so I don't know how the perrenial reacts to dry climates.  I believe the annual just goes to seed. Good luck!
