(Ammi majus)
Old-fashioned Bishop’s Lace flowers look like huge filigreed snowflakes floating above finely cut green foliage. Our superior 3 foot tall cut flower strain has more perfectly formed, snow white blossoms than the more familiar but somewhat weedy Queen Anne’s Lace. You’ll find the delicate frothy blossoms are perfect filler flowers for exquisite summer bouquets. Bishop Lace’s 4 to 5 inch intricate blossoms on graceful long stems add woodland charm to every garden.
Seed Count: Approx. 425 / Weight: 0.25 gms

BEST TO START DIRECTLY IN THE GARDEN

Sow seed thinly into a finely textured garden bed in full sun as early in spring as ground can be worked. Cover 1/4 inch deep and keep soil moist. Weed and water young seedlings carefully and thin before they get too crowded.

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Start seed indoors 6 weeks before last spring frost date. Sow seeds as thinly as possible in a container or individual pots of seed starting mix. Cover very lightly, keep evenly moist and provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outdoors. Transplant carefully to avoid disturbing roots. Thin or transplant seedlings 8 to 10 inches apart when large enough to handle.

 

GROWING NOTES

Bishop’s Lace grows easily in most garden conditions. Make several sowings a few weeks apart through late spring for a succession of bloom. In mild winter climates, sow again in late fall for earliest spring displays. Use Bishop’s Lace as a delicate filler flower for adding texture and dainty substance to every bouquet.
