The roots of this wild carrot species, which is also known as Queen Anne's lace, are very thin and soon become woody, yet when young they are tender and heavy with aroma, which makes a good basis for a bouillon. Wild carrot seeds or the oil
extracted from them also be used cosmetically and medically. The carrot seeds are edible and are used for the most diverse purposes. They are said to be contraceptives and are used as a spice for bread analogous to caraway.

The wild carrot is enormously robust and grows on a variety of soils, even on overfertilized and oversalted ones. The blossom that appears in the second year is very popular with insects and bees. The root of a biennial plant shouldn't be harvested anymore as it tastes very hot and is lignified. With its sweeping, white umbels, it is also a beautiful wildflower for the wildlife garden.

Biennial plant. Outdoor sowing in summer. Loves sunny locations and loamy soil.
  • Seedtime: From January, it can be sown in the hotbed and from March outdoors
  • Sowing depth: 1-2.5cm
  • Ideal germination temperature: From +3°C
  • Germination duration: Carrots need very long, 21-27 days on average. That's why it's recommended to mix the seeds with either radish seeds or dill seeds. Both germinates clearly faster and marks a row so that the care of the sowing gets easier. By harvesting the radish that is ripe earlier, the rows are pruned automatically. The dill should also be removed when it has reached a height of approx. 25cm.
  • Row spacing: 30-45cm
  • Planting distance: 3-5cm
  • Location: Sunny
  • Soil: Sandy-loamy, deep, loose, and stone-free soil. This variety prospers very well in loamy soils.
  • Care: Carrots are moderate feeders and don't tolerate fresh dung. Only use ripe compost for fertilizing. Carrots like to be kept moist and often need supplementary irrigation on sandy soils during the hot summer months. Weeding out is crucial while the plant is still young as the tender plantlets are overrun with weeds fast. For good results, the soil should be loosened regularly. Especially after strong rain when it tends to clog.
  • Harvest: Most often from May to July. There's no clear sign of maturity.
  • Family: Umbellifers (Apiaceae)
