PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Ammi majus
False Bishop's Weed, Herb William
Currently unavailable
Type/Hardiness Annual, Biennial, Hardy
Flowering period Summer
Height 18-36in/0.5-1m
Light preference Full sun/part shade
Soil preference Any, but well drained
Sowing time/depth April-June, barely cover
Rather like cow parsley, but both flowers and foliage are much finer. This annual is a very useful filler plant for flower arrangers and is very attractive to bees. Plant en masse for best effect. A similar, but less well known plant (in my opinion far superior, and a perennial to boot) is Cenolophium denudatum.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Direct sow late spring/early summer at a depth of approx 2mm, keeping soil moist. Thin to 10-12in apart.
