For a knock out love letter, use your Chocolate Lace Flowers to make your own ink! Here's how: Collect and dry petals from about 5 flowers. Toss into a mortal and pestle, and grind to a powder. Add a tiny bit of boiling water, just enough to cover the powder and mix. Leave in a sunny spot in your house for 24 hours. Strain with a coffee filter or cheesecloth, and voila. Get a fine brush and write/paint away.

How to Plant
Tuck seeds 1/4" deep, 2" apart. Water gently & regularly as seedlings emerge over the next 2 wks. Once babies are 2” tall, pluck so there's just one per 12"
Where to Plant
Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, and space seeds 2" apart, thin plants to about 9" apart.
When to Plant
Plant outside after your average last frost in the Spring.
When to Expect Blooms
Sweet, sweet Summertime.
Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick the flowers regularly (Bring the flowers in! Make bouquets! Have fun!) to encourage more blooms. And ask us any questions along the way.
Lace Flower is in the same family as Queen Anne's Lace and will readily self seed in poor soil if left to go to seed.
