Product Description

Grow a garden filled with Chinese Forget-Me-Not, from freshly harvested Cynoglossum amabile flower seeds. Chinese Forget-Me-Not will produce indigo-blue flowers atop attractive green foliage, which grows to a mature height of 18 to 24 inches tall. The blooms measure to roughly a half inch in diameter. The difference from regular Forget-Me-Not and Chinese Forget-Me-Not can be seen from the centers of the flowers, as well as the petal formation. Myosotis will display a more slendered petal with small yellow centers, while Chinese Forget-Me-Not blooms display a deep blue center, with shorter, more rounded petals. These plants are known to attract all sorts of beneficial insects to the garden, such as bumblebees, butterflies, hummingbirds and honeybees as well.

Chinese Forget-Me-Not is established as an annual / biennial flowering plant. They grow quickly from fresh wildflower seeds, bloom profusely through the warm months of Summer and will later wilt with the cooler temperatures of Late Autumn and early Winter. The seeds can naturally drop to the bare ground beneath, allowing fresh, new plant life to regrow the following season. If your winter temperatures aren't too severe, the plants can also regrow themselves from deeply established roots.

Chinese Forget-Me-Not plants are the perfect candidate for use as a cut flower, due to their long slender stems. Enjoy their royal blue flowers in floral arrangements and bouquets, or dry them out for use in arts and crafts.

Sowing The Seed

Chinese Forget-Me-Not flower seeds can be started indoors or directly outdoors. If started indoors, we recommend sowing in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow the seeds directly to the surface of the soil, in groups of 2 or 3 per pot. Cover the seeds thinly, with roughly 1/4" of topsoil. Transplant entire pots, or direct sow outdoors when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed.

Growing Conditions

Chinese Forget-Me-Not plants are fond of areas that receive full sunlight, with temperatures of at least 70F, or more. You should also provide a soil that is moderately rich, to average, but also well drained. To improve drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to any areas that consist of hard, compact soil. Water the seeds lightly each day, with a mist setting or spray bottle, to ensure that they receive enough moisture to germinate properly.

Germination & Growth

Chinese Forget-Me-Not seeds usually begin to germinate within roughly 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants reach a mature height of roughly 18 to 24 inches tall, spanning 8 to 12 inches wide. The plants themselves can be spaced roughly 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. Chinese Forget-Me-Not flowers are often times used as a cut flower and can be added to floral arrangements & bouquets as well. They will also attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden, such as bumblebees, hummingbirds, butterflies & most importantly, the honeybee.

Question: When should I sow these seeds?
Answer: This is something you must research for your specific region. We offer a ton of helpful articles in our Blog that explain in depth how to successfully grow the seeds within our shop. All of our product pages have useful information on sowing as well.

Question: What is the size of this packet?
Answer: Our traditional packages are 3.25" wide, by 4.50" tall. Some of our larger packages of Corn, Beans and Peas will be 4" wide by 4.675" tall, and our Wildflower packages containing bulk seeds are usually 4.50" wide by 6.45" inches tall.

Question: Are your seeds heirloom?
Answer: In short yes, a vast majority of the plant varieties we carry are heirloom. Heirlooms are varieties that have been passed down for generations.

Question: Are your seeds GMO?
Answer: No, we promise to never knowingly carry or supply any GMO based seed products and steer clear of seed producers from major GMO companies, such as Monsanto.

Question: Are your seeds Organic?
Answer: No, at this time we do not sell organic seeds.

Question: How long will shipping take?
Answer: This can sometimes depend on the size of your order, however 95% of our orders will ship within 24 to 48 hours. All orders ship First Class by default and can take 2 - 5 business days to arrive. Orders placed on a Friday may not ship until the following Monday.

Answer: Yes, all of our seed packets have detailed sowing information on the reverse side as well as a QR code that leads to the original product page here on our website.

Question: Why is there no expiration date on your seed packages?
Answer: Our seeds are contained within a temperature controlled facility in airtight containers. When we ship our seed products to customers, we fill a small portion of packets that sell on a weekly basis. We do not print an expiration date on the packets since the large majority of seeds technically do not expire for long periods of time, IF they are stored in the proper conditions. If you plan to store or save your seeds for the following year, we suggest placing them in a ziplock bag, later storing them in a dark, cool and dry area of the home.

Question: Can I receive a catalog in the mail?
Answer: At this time, we are focused on remaining solely online. We do not send paper catalogs in an effort to save more trees, as well as keep our prices low.

Question: I did not receive an invoice for my order.
Answer: We do not send paper invoices with our orders since the invoice can be viewed online with your Seed Needs account. You will also receive an invoice / order confirmation through email.

Question: What is the difference between a hybrid variety and a GMO based seed product.
Answer: Hybrids are a NATURAL process of cross pollinating two species, thus producing a first generation hybrid (F1.) For example: Mixing a red, double blooming, single stem sunflower, with a yellow, multi branching sunflower might result in a orange-red, double blooming, multibranching plant.

GMO based seed products are a completely different and unatural process of gene splicing in a laboratory. The process entails the introduction of a separate biological kingdom, such as a bacteria, or a pesticide. This bacteria or pesticide is then eaten directly by the consumer when the crops reach maturity. (BAD NEWS)

Question: Can you ship these seeds overseas?
Answer: At this time we only ship within the United States and Canada.
