The Q&A Archives: Forget-me-not's

Question: How long do these seeds need to germinate and can they germinate in early summer?

Answer: These are usually treated like biennials and planted in late summer to early fall to germinate, undergo a chilling and then bloom the following spring. Once planted in the garden, they usually self seed and perennialize. I think the summer heat and high soil temperature would prevent germination in summer.
