Growing Calendar for Forget-Me-Not Mix - Myosotis Plants
Delivery: Early October to Late November
Add forget-me-nots to wall-side borders, place them in containers or place them in flower beds that receive full sun or even some shade. Every plant reveals tiny but abundant flowers with five perfectly-spaced petals in pink, blue or white. The yellow centre of every flower makes them extra pretty and attractive to beneficial insects like bees.
We suggest that you put your plugs in 9cm pots filled with compost and let them grow a bit before you transfer them outside. At this stage position around 30cm (12in) apart to allow them to develop into free-flowering plants in the border.
Forget-me-nots make lovely container plants too so consider this if you need some flower colour bringing to a shady or sunny area.
Collect the seed-heads of forget-me-nots after your plants have flowers to acquire a bank of seeds that you can sow in different parts of the garden or at the edge of your vegetable patch.
How your plants arrive:
Your plants are sent to you as young plants containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots and some young green stems and leaves. Although they are small plants they are just the right size to get growing fast once you plant them in bigger pots.
Your flower plants will arrive to you in a plastic container with a lid (which acts as a mini-greenhouse) to create an effective humid atmosphere for your young plants to thrive and get a promising start to give you lovely flowers. Your container may come in a box for extra protection when leaving our nursery to arriving at your home.
Our products are all grown with the utmost care and to high standards of quality. We regularly check our nursery stock to determine exactly when they will be at the optimum time for despatch.
We despatch our fresh, nursery-grown live plants (including vegetables, trees and flowers) when they are at a stage of growth ready for you, the customer, to plant on at home.
The delivery period shown on your order confirmation indicates when you can expect to receive your order and we will endeavour to despatch your plants in this period within 7-14 days
