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

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: Plant 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.

Flowers: April-June

Height & Spread: 20cm high x 10-15cm spread
