One of the first things I had to do before gluing down the wild carrot for my Sweet Carrot series was to flatten each plant out. It would have taken days to flatten them under heavy books, so I decided to press them between collagraph plates. Another name for these plants is Birds Nest, and for good reason. After the florets have withered, the stems curve upwards to create the shape you see below which would make it difficult to glue to a plate.
