Morehavens Camomile Nursery is a family-run nursery, established over 40 years ago by my grandfather Lt Col F R B Moore.
My grandfather was a friend of Dorothy Sewart, the botanist who discovered the Treneague cultivar Anthemis nobilis ‘Treneague’ (now classified as Chamaemelum nobile ‘Treneague’) at her home in Lower Treneague, nr Wadebridge, Cornwall.
Upon Dorothy Sewart’s retirement, my grandfather established Morehavens Camomile Nursery to specialise in the cultivation of the non-flowering ‘Treneague’ plant cultivar.
My mother, Ann Moore, continued the family business, adding to the collection by growing the dwarf variety of fragrant no-mow lawn chamomile (camomile), known as Chamaemelum nobile dwarf or ’Roman’ chamomile. This variety, which very occasionally produces small daisy-like flowers, also produces an excellent chamomile lawn that establishes on chalkier soils.
Succeeding my mother when she retired a decade ago, I now have the pleasure of being the third generation continuing the family nursery.
