Product Description

Grow a garden filled with the delightful Forget-Me-Not, from freshly harvested Myosotis sylvatica flower seeds. Forget-Me-Not is an heirloom wildflower that will produce pale blue flowers, accented with yellow centers. The plants mature to a height of roughly 10 to 18 inches tall and up to 8 inches wide. Each individual branch will display a cluster of flowers, populated with as many as 10 flowers. Because of their short growth habit, they are often times used as a groundcover and can be added to borders, pots & containers, along walkways, driveways and anywhere in which the soil stays somewhat moist. Forget-Me-Not flowers are not only attractive to humans, but many beneficial insects will cling to these beauties as well. Insects, such as butterflies, bumblebees, hummingbirds, honeybees & even ladybugs will be visible throughout the warm months of Spring and Summer.

Forget-Me-Not is categorized as a biennial / annual flowering plant. This cool weather wildflower will establish itself quickly, growing and blooming profusely through the warm months of summer, up until late fall. When the weather becomes cooler, the plants will wilt on the surface, later dying with the first killing frost. The plants are known to readily self seed and can return the following year from seeds that fall to the bare ground beneath. If the winter months are not too harsh, your Forget-Me-Not plants can survive, regrowing from roots. You can also collect seeds from dried flower heads at the end of the Autumn season to resow yourself, when the Spring rolls around.

Forget-Me-Not flowers are not just beautiful in the garden, their attractive leaves, stems and blooms can also be used indoors as well. Myosotis is a perfect selection for use as a cut flower in all sorts of floral arrangements and bouquets. These beauties can also be dried out for arts & crafts as well.

You might consider purchasing individual seed packets in bulk to pass out as favors at your next party or event. Forget-Me-Not seed packets make an excellent giveaway in many instances, such as weddings, bridal showers, baby showers & more.

Sowing The Seed

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 3 or 4 per pot. Do not cover the seeds with topsoil, since they will require a bit of direct light to properly germinate. Transplant entire pots, or direct sow outdoors when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed.

Growing Conditions

Forget-Me-Not flowers are grown in areas that will receive partial shade for the majority of the day. They can thrive in full sunlight as well, however temperatures should be below 80F. Make sure that the soil is fertile and rich in organic matter. You will also want to provide them with a well draining medium. To increase your drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to any areas that consist of hard, compact soil. Water the seeds daily with a mist setting or spray bottle so that they remain moist until germination occurs.

Germination & Growth

Your Baby’s Breath seeds will begin to germinate in roughly 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants will grow to a mature height of 8 to 18 inches tall and can be spaced roughly 10 inches apart from one another. These popular flowers are mainly grown for use as a cut flower, in floral arrangements and bouquets as well.

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: 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.
