A biennial also known as Queen Anne's lace this is a dainty, frothy wildflower. Unlike cultivated carrots, the wild carrot's root is tough and stringy and not particularly palatable. The flower itself is long stalked and shaped like an up-turned umbrella. It is similar in appearance to other members of the Apiacae or 'umbellifer' family - such as the highly poisonous hemlock and the commonly seen cow parsley - with white flowers and feathery leaves.
However, the foliage of wild carrot is a mix of 'bipinnate' (leaves where the feathers are feathered themselves) and tripinnate (leaves where the feathers on the feathers are feathered!), a root that smells of carrots, a hairy stem and occasionally a single red flower in the centre.

Sowing: Sow in Early spring to early summer or in Autumn
Daucus carota is easy to grow from seed. Grows well in well-drained to dry soils, with low to moderate soil fertility.
Sow directly where they are to grow, either in autumn or spring, as, with its long taproot, this plant does not transplant well. The seedlings might be mistaken for grass seedlings at first, as the cotyledons are linear, but the next set of leaves is more distinctive.
This biennial plant forms a basal rosette of leaves in its first year and an erect flowering stalk the second, flowering occurs from July to September. Plants die after flowering. Some plants may act as an annual and flower in the first year.
