Forget Me Not Flowers are beautiful blue flowers with yellow centers that I am sure you will enjoy!  

These helpful hints will ensure your success...

Forget-Me-Nots can be started from seed. Directly sow Forget Me Not seeds into your flower garden after all danger of frost, or for earlier blooms, start them indoors a few weeks before the last frost in your area.

Cover seeds lightly with 1/8" of garden soil. Space them 4-5 inches apart and thin seedlings to 10" apart.

It will take the seeds 8-14 days to germinate. You should begin to see tiny buds within this time period. The plants should continue to grow to a size of 12-24 inches.  They will produce tiny, true blue flowers with yellow centers that are so lovely blooming above the hairy leaves and stems.  They make a wonderful carpet or ground cover under taller plants of small deciduous trees.  You can try growing them in flower beds, borders, rock gardens, and containers.

Forget-Me-Nuts are easy to grow. They will bloom profusely in shady areas, and do not require a lot of attention. They prefer shade, but will do well in sun, too. They grow well in average soils but the soil should be kept moist.Add a general purpose fertilizer once or twice a season.     

They may need mulching for winter protection in northern areas, or grow them as a biennial.

Enjoy these beautiful flowers and as always...never hesitate to call us for all your real estate needs! We are always interested in your referrals!!!
