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?

Forget-Me-Nots are a hardy low growing plant.

Start seeds in a good, sterile, moist starting medium.
You can use any kind of container to start Forget-Me-Nots.
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.

Seed may be started from Spring through Summer. After
sowing, cover container with plastic wrap. At the
first sign of germination remove plastic wrap and
give plenty of light. If you place them in a window
turn them occasionally so that all plants will get
equal light. All plants tend to grow toward the light.

Forget-Me-Nots will do well in full sun or part shade.
They grow to a height of about 12".
