Plant details

During winter, forget-me-not, Myosotis sylvatica, looks unpromising, with undistinguished leafy rosettes, sometimes discoloured by hard weather. But as spring advances, it becomes a carpet of rich blue flowers, which form the perfect background to wallflowers and tulips.

Grow Myosotis sylvatica in moist but well-drained soil in sun or shade. A biennial, sow seeds where they are to grow in summer, to flower the following year. Let plants set seed before removing plants after blooming.
