Wild Carrot

Daucus carota

Wild Carrot is also known as Queen Anne’s Lace. If you look at the flower in full bloom there is a red dot in the centre…

According to legend, this single dark flower represents a drop of blood shed by Queen Anne herself when she pricked her finger on a needle. 

Towering at over 6ft tall it looks great planted en-masse, Very tolerant of poor soil conditions.

Grows best from an early Autumn or very early Spring sowing. 

I use every stem of this brilliant filler flower!

We’ve supersized out packets with a generous 1/4 teaspoon of this tiny seed in every pack!

Place flowers straight into ready buckets of water. We rest our stems for a few hours in water, this is called conditioning.
