Who can resist the supercute kitten faces of Johnny Jump-Ups. In our Level Zero Flowers for Pollinators project, July is the month to plant them, but any time Autumn to Spring is fine.. This heritage variety will flower for many months. Harvesting the edible blooms will encourage even more kittens to jump up . Be sure to leave some on at the end though, and they will go to seed by themselves, and become cheery volunteers in your garden. Lovely. There are about 200 tiny seeds in your packet, by weight.
