Can anyone please tell me what the large white flowers are in Monty's white garden - the ones that look like cow parsley. Many thanks!

Hi

They are an annual Ammi Majus- grown from seed early in the year.

They came free with Gardens illustrated magazine last year.

Lovely magazine- currently there is a trial offer on of 5 mags for £5- can cancel as the trail comes to an end, but well worth the viewing for £5.

I haven't yet planted mine out so have spoilt the display- must do it today- mine were started too late and not planted out early enough so will be small not like Monty's stunning ones!

Looked brill in his garden!

You can sow the seed in september for flowers next year.

Thanks Aliesh.  I bought some seeds at beginning of season, didn't do anything with them and was wondering when to.  I'm making a note now to sow them next month.  Can they be sown in trays/pots and planted out next spring?  Other than poppies I have never had any success direct sowing.

Yes i think it will be ok to overwinter in pots.When planted out next spring you should get nice strong plants.

Many thanks for the replies. I shall have to get some seeds and try a few direct sowings and some into pots (see which are best!).

I think the common name is Bishop's Flower. It is often confused with Queen Anne's Lace
