Beautiful and dainty, Forget-me-nots are a classic springtime cottage garden flower.
Filling your garden with gorgeous and vibrant clouds of blue, these little flowers symbolise remembrance, and love and are said to bring protection and luck.
Equally happy in a window box, against a backdrop of colourful tulips or wallflowers in the garden or even in a wildflower meadow; the humble Forget-me-not is easy-going and trouble-free but no less glorious for it.
They are great self-seeders….once you have Forget-me-nots you’ll never have to buy the seeds again!
Once they have flowered, leave the plants in place and allow the seeds to fall naturally. Leave to overwinter and then relocate the new little seedlings to where you want them early the following spring.
Seed Quantity 1000 Seeds
Type Short-lived Perennial/Biennial
Genus Myosotis alpestris
Sow Seeds Sow them in May/June onto moist compost and cover very lightly. They are fully hardy and will flower the following April-June. Germination takes 14-18 days. Keep moist but do not overwater. Once they are large enough to handle, prick them out and pot on.
Plant Out Acclimatise gradually before planting them out into the garden in early autumn. Or if you prefer you can sow the seeds directly in May/June once all risk of frost has passed.
Height & Spread 10-15cm high x 10-15cm spread

Beautifully box of biennial seeds. I haven’t sown them yet but I’m looking forward to doing so. Delivered promptly and the packaging is all recyclable and so prettily presented with two cute strawflowers inside. Thank you
Ordered a couple of chilli varieties that I hadn’t found anywhere else. They arrived within just a couple of days (I’m in Kent) and included an extra package of seeds as a “thank you” which I thought was such a lovely touch, thank you! Very excited to get growing 😊
From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt
Quickly dispatched and delivered. Arrived safely. Nicely labelled clearly with instructions on how to sow. Can’t go wrong. Would definitely order from again.
Arrived on Time and loved the packaging. About to sow some seeds and hopefully for some chillies in Summer
Excellent arrived safely beautifully boxed.
Looking forward to sowing these seeds soon.
Top quality seeds and so beautifully presented - I bought them for myself but it was like receiving a gorgeous gift!
Great service, prompt delivery and beautifully packaged. It was for a gift so not tried them but they look lovely.
I am happy to give a 5 star review for Bishy Barnabee’s Cottage Garden Flower and Herb Box.
I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
The delivery was super quick and I’m working my way through sewing the seeds, on the monthly instructions contained on each packet.
I think any of the seed boxes would make a beautiful gift or why not treat yourself!
I’ll certainly be buying more as I expand my cut flower garden 🌸🐞
Another beautifully presented gift box of seeds delivered quickly and professionally presented. I bought as a gift for a friend who was delighted. I will definitely be back again.
I was so pleased to receive this box of seeds, beautifully presented with a lovely little dried flower to add a special touch, thank you, can’t wait to get started on sowing them .
I can’t rate these seeds highly enough! Germination was super fast and baby plants are lovely and strong. Looking forward to a flower filled 2023 , and will definitely be ordering lots more goodies from Bbcg x
