Easy to grow for a mass of flowers in late spring in beds and borders, especially with spring bulbs.
Sow outdoors, May-July, in a seed bed, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2″) apart, when large enough to handle. Plant out to flowering position in autumn, allowing 15cm (6″) between plants. Flowers: April-June, the following year.
Tip: Forget-me-nots do best in light or part shade, as they originate from woodland areas.
