Myosotis 'Victoria Mixed'
Myosotis 'Victoria Mixed' Seeds
This lovely plant produces masses of tiny blue, pink and white flowers with a yellow and white eye. Grow on it’s own in drifts or with other early spring flowering plants to fully appreciate the delicate blooms of this special plant.
In the wild Forget-me-nots are woodland edge plants where they grow in areas with sun and dappled shade. They are perfect for growing at the back of borders, along fences and hedges and underneath tall deciduous shrubs. Forget-me-nots add a lovely relaxed feel to a garden and are particularly good for country gardens, wildlife gardens and cottage gardens.
|Plant Type||Hardy Biennial|
|Height & Spread||20-24cm (8-10 inches) tall x 20cm (8 inches) spread|
|Sow Seeds||To treat as annuals sow indoors in February - April on the surface of fine compost. Myosotis need light to germinate so do not cover the tiny seeds. To treat as biennials sow direct in late summer/early autumn whilst the soil is warm.|
|Thin/Plant Out||When indoor raised seedlings are large enough to handle pot up into 9cm pots and grow on indoors until May when they can be planted into their flowering position|
|Conditions Required||Forget-me-nots are hedge bottom and woodland edge plants and love moist but well drained soil. They prefer part shade with some sunshine. If the site is too shady they will still flower but plants will become leggy and lean towards any available light.|
|Flower Production||Masses of bright blue, pink and white flowers are produced for up to two months from May/June to July. |
|Picking||Forget-me-Nots make beautiful little posies and button holes. Sear stem ends for the longest lasting cut flowers (up to 10 days)|
|Planting Combinations||Be generous if you have the space and grow Forget-me-nots in drifts. They also grow beautifully with other biennials such as Sweet Rocket (Hesperis matronalis) and Honesty (Lunaria annua) which also enjoy the same woodland edge type conditions.|
