Along many roadsides, that have not been cut, around Birmingham you can see the beautiful sweeps of Queen Anne’s Lace. These plants are excellent plants for your garden too, in small quantities. They are easily controlled in your garden, if you cut the flowers in bloom for arranging or before the seed nest turns brown.
If you want to grow Queen Anne’s Lace in your garden, simply wait until the flower looks like a little bird nest and turns brown. Snip these heads off and put them in a bag and shake the seeds out of the nests. In early August seed them in your garden in a sunny location, and about this time next summer they will be a beautiful addition to your flower garden.
