Can Forget-Me-Nots be grown in pots?
Place indoor forget–me–nots in containers filled with fresh potting mix. Be sure the pot has a hole in the bottom, as the plants will rot without adequate drainage. One plant per container is best for growing forget–me–nots inside, as the plants need plenty of air circulation.
Do Forget-Me-Nots come back every year?
Forget–me–nots are perennials that regrow themselves year after year, which can be a blessing and a curse. On one hand, you don’t have to plant them every year to keep your garden looking great. On the other, they can easily get out of control.
Where is the best place to plant Forget-Me-Nots?
Forget–me–nots are easy to grow as long as they have organically enriched soil, regular-to-ample water and partial shade. They prefer moist soil with good drainage in a sunny or shady spot. Forget–me–nots perform best in cool weather and in areas where summers are not excessively hot.
How do you plant forget-me-not seeds?
What month do you plant Forget-Me-Nots?
Sow forget–me–not seeds directly outdoors in May or June, or indoors in May, June and September. If sowing under cover, sprinkle seeds and cover with compost. Use a heated propagator or a warm windowsill to create the right conditions for germination. Once seedlings are large enough to handle, prick out and pot on.
How long do Forget-Me-Nots take to grow?
Annual forget–me–nots take one year to complete the growing cycle. These varieties, like the small-flowered-forget–me–not (Myosotis stricta), germinate in late winter and early spring, flower in late spring or summer and then produce seeds. Once the seeds disperse the plants die back.
Should I pull up Forget Me Nots?
Forget–me–not control may be necessary to keep the plant in check. Forget–me–nots are easy to pull, or you can remove them by hoeing or cultivating the soil. However, the plants will soon resprout if you don’t remove every bit of the roots.
How long do Forget Me Nots live?
When planted correctly in their ideal habitat, the blue flowers will bloom continuously in the spring for two to three months, from April to June. Once the heat of summer sets in, remaining flowers will wilt and new buds will fail to form.
