Is it too late to sow Queen Anne’s Lace now in zone seven? I gathered the seeds last fall.

Yes, you can still plant this now. It is a relative of carrots and will grow quickly. Just to let you know though, this is considered a noxious and invasive weed in many areas and it is technically illegal to plant in many areas because of this.

Can I grow Queen Anne\’s lace in a container garden?

What other types of butterfly-friendly plants are good for container gardens?

Thanks!

Yes, you can grow them in container. Just remember to get a container that is fairly deep, as these are actually a species of carrot, and will require similar care. They will grow only leaves the first year, and flower the second.

There are many plants suitable for butterfly gardens. You can find out more in this article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/beneficial/attracting-butterflies.htm

Planting Queen Anne’s Lace Seeds

I know queen anne’s lace seeds shouldn’t be planted deep at all but exactly how deep should they be planted. Should I prepare the soiland scatter the seeds lightly and then just pat them in the soil or do I need to put just a light cover of soil on top of them? Thanks, Diane

First check with your state and county about the legality of planting Queen Anne's Lace, Daucus carrota. It is highly invasive and banned in some areas. It readily sprouts from seeds allowed to fall from the plant. Lightly press into soil to keep seed from washing out during rains. Please be considerate of your neighbors and not allow it to go to seed.
