The Q&A Archives: Starting Forget-Me-Nots

Question: What is the best way to start forget me nots? I have a packet of seeds without any directions. Can I use a clay or plastic pot with potting soil?

Answer: Forget-Me-Nots are a hardy low growing plant. <br><br>Start seeds in a good, sterile, moist starting medium. <br>You can use any kind of container to start Forget-Me-Nots.<br>I prefer a tray to start seed. If your container has been used before sterilize it with a solution of water and bleach before you use it to sow your seeds.<br><br>Seed may be started from Spring through Summer. After<br>sowing, cover container with plastic wrap. At the <br>first sign of germination remove plastic wrap and<br>give plenty of light.

All plants tend to grow toward the light.<br><br>Forget-Me-Nots will do well in full sun or part shade.<br>They grow to a height of about 12".
