Do you want to grow queen anne’s lace seeds in Virginia, but don’t know when to start them?

Starting queen anne’s lace seeds is not as easy as it seems.

Here’s why:

  • Queen Anne’s Lace Seeds must be consistently watered, receive at least 8 hours of sunlight a day, & be kept at room temperature of at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

So if you don’t consistently water them they won’t germinate. If they aren’t in a room that is at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit they won’t sprout. And if it receives 8 hours of sunlight the plant itself won’t grow.

  • Because Virginia’s growing season is not long enough, queen anne’s lace seeds cannot be sowed outside and should only be started indoors.

Because of this, I’m going to teach you the ideal time to start queen anne’s lace seeds indoors in Virginia:
