Tools & Materials

  • Water
  • Soil
  • 1 chamomile tea bag
  • A sunny location or grow light


If you are interested in growing chamomile, it is likely that you are familiar with chamomile tea. I got a box of 20 bags for 1 dollar at the dollar store.

I just cut open the bag, dumped the contents into some soil, and made sure it is well watered, and put under some sort of light.

Just 5 days later, I had sprouts.

You can start your chamomile in a cup indoors like I did here, or just sprinkle the tea bag where you want to grow the chamomile in your garden.

So, why does this technique of using a chamomile tea bag work? Well the part of chamomile that is used in making the tea is actually the flower, which is rich in seeds.
