How to grow Queen Anne's Lace (Ammi majus* seeds)
  Soil preference: Adaptable
  Sun/Shade: Needs full sun.
  Moisture Requirements: Average moisture, well-drained.
  Instructions: This is the "other" Queen Anne's Lace. The more common one, Daucus carota, the roadside weed in all 50 states, is considered an invasive pest in many areas, so probably should not be planted, although you may end up with it naturally in your meadow. This species is also called Bishop's Flower, and is an annual, while the more common one is biennial. This species is not invasive, but it can be toxic to animals, so keep that in mind. Very easy to grow, and great for cutting.
