Growing

Start seed indoors in trays 8 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed. Seeds require total darkness to germinate so cover and place in a dark room until they sprout.

Harvesting

Pick when half the flowers are open.

Forget-me-nots are prone to wilting in the heat, so harvest during the coolest part of the day and place directly into water to rest a few hours before arranging. Stems will last for 5-6 days if flower preservative is used.

Other Uses

Good for butterflies and hummingbirds.
