This British native is becoming the new hot biscuit in cut flower world…well…ok…to be fair I’m sure florists have been using it for yonks but I have only just started using it. I saw Mari using it at Rosewartha Flower Farm and loved the relaxed/warm vibe it brings to the vase and indeed the garden. I have seen it used in wild meadow style planting to great effect.
Daucus is a biennial but I get great results growing it as an annual…it flowers with no problem from a spring sowing.
I will be growing a dedicated patch for Daucus and let it self seed year in year out.
1000ish seeds per packet
Height 100 cm
Sow March-June and August/Early September
An early spring sowing will provide first year flowers…you can also sow in the summer/Autumn for flowering the following spring.
