  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile or poor, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy (biennial)

    Forget-me-nots are one of the most welcome sights in spring. The flowers may be small, but they appear in abundance and their colour is bright and cheerful. They look great teamed up with spring-flowering bulbs or ferns, particularly when planted en-masse along the edges of a path or border.

    Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 5 - 7cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They are ideal for keen gardeners who have a greenhouse where the plants can be grown on until they are ready for planting out in the garden.

When can these be planted outside in the garden or in pots? How long do they need to be grown on under cover? Thank you

These plug plants are fully hardy so they could be planted straight out, however it's best to pot them up and grow them on in an unheated greenhouse, as then you will have larger plants ready to plant out in early spring - and larger plants mean a better display!

The description says they flower April to June but they are not available to order until Summer 2016. Does this mean that they won't flower until Spring 2017?

Hello there Yes these plugs will be available late summer 2016, for delivery that autumn to flower in 2017. Hope this helps.

Plant up summer containers

After the last frost date, plant up containers with tender flowering bedding and reliable foliage plants. Line terracotta pots with polythene, taking care not to cover the planting holes, to reduce water loss through the porous sides of the pot.
