These seeds were saved from a productive German Chamomile plant in Mantis Planting owner Nisha Maxwell's garden located in the California high desert of Joshua Tree. Chamomile is a pretty compact herb that makes relaxing tea and has many other medical benefits. It is lovely for bouquets as well.


These seeds are easy to grow and care for. Simply plant the seeds in well-drained soil, water regularly, and place in a sunny location to ensure a bountiful harvest of fragrant Chamomile blooms. Once ready for harvest, simply pluck the flowers and dry them for use in teas, infusions, and even culinary dishes.
