Chamomile, known for its soothing properties as a tea, is easy to grow. Seeds benefit from exposure to cold weather. Lightly press seeds into the soils surface, since they need light to germinate. Under the right growing conditions, this plant should self seed for the following year. Growing chamomile with your vegetables will attract beneficial bugs and enhance the growth of your cucumbers and onions. Johnny Jump Ups sprout best after a cold/moist treatment, which is perfect for this year’s Chicago Spring. Seeds need darkness to germinate, so cover with a fine layer of soil, about 1/8 inch. Johnny jump ups, or monkey faces (as I called them when I was a kid), self seed the following year. The flowers are edible and can be added to salads or deserts.
