How to Plant Mixed Forget me Nots
- Start seeds indoors at any time, or start outdoors after the last frosts have passed. Sow in pots or seed starting trays, approximately 3mm deep in small drills.
- For borders or ground cover, loosen ground soil until it can be handled easily without clumps. Next scatter the forget me not seeds and work into the soil, only covering lightly.
- Ensure the sowing area receives plenty of sunlight. Keep warm, while keeping the soil moist. Small seedlings should begin to emerge within two weeks.
- If covering multiple locations or transplanting to larger pots, thin plants to 30cm apart to allow an easier transplant once they reach adolescence. Too many close plants will cause root entanglement. This is only an issue if transplanting to avoid root damage.
