Compact forget-me-not Myosotis ‘Blue Ball’ forms a neat rounded mound, smothered in masses of tiny, bright blue flowers in spring. This popular biennial is a cottage garden favourite, and looks lovely planted with daffodils and other spring bulbs. It self-seeds freely, so you’re sure to have forget-me-nots popping up in your garden next year.

These plants are biennials and will die after flowering. If you want them to self-seed, wait until the seeds have formed before pulling them up, otherwise pull up after they have finished flowering.

How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your 12 garden ready plug plants from September to October in plug trays in a box. These are designed to keep your plants secure and to prevent damage in transit.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you aren't able to plant your plugs up straight away then ensure they stay moist. You can place your plugs on a saucer or tray of shallow water so they are able to stay hydrated. Aim to have your plugs planted within 3 days.

Planting tips and hints:

Planting in containers: Plant approximately 8-12 plants per 30cm container. Sprinkle a layer of stone or gravel in the bottom of the container to aid drainage. Use a high-quality young plant or general-purpose compost spaced evenly with enough space to allow the plants to grow. Mix in a slow-release granular fertiliser in the compost before placing the plant to provide plenty of nutrients. Water thoroughly once planted up. Continue to water every 3-5 days and don't allow the container to dry out.

Planting in the ground:  Dig a hole approximately twice as deep and 3 times as wide as the plant, if your soil is heavy mix in general-purpose compost, horticultural sand and stone or potting grit to ensure good drainage. Gently compact the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.

Feeding and aftercare: When feeding use a liquid feed high in potash so it gets to the roots of the plant allowing them to absorb the feed.
