FORGET ME NOT SYLVIA MIX EDIBLE FLOWERS! BEAUTIFUL COLOURS! SHADE TOLERANT HERB $2.20

EDIBLE FLOWERS! THESE PREFER POOR SOILS! THE NEW SYLVIA RANGE OF FORGET ME NOTS! AND YOU WILL GET EVERY COLOUR! A STUNNING ARRAY OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PASTEL SHADES IN BLUE, PINK AND WHITE. SHADE TOLERANT.

A beautiful mix of pastel blue, pink and white low growing flowers to blend into mixed borders. Sprinkle seed around established plants to create a mass planting sea of colour. These premium forget-me-nots are called the Sylva series mix. They are excellent for massing with spring-blooming bulbs, as an edging to borders, containers or hanging baskets.

The seeds remain viable – even in the soil – for up to thirty years! Forget-me-not is usually an annual or biennial herb with its success being based on its flexibility. The seeds can lay dormant in the soil until they deem it is a suitable time to sprout for up to thirty years and germinate when conditions become favourable. Forget-me-not’s flowers are pollinated by small flies and if needs be the plant can also self-pollinate to ensure its seed production. It is in the Boraginaceae (borage) family.

Forget me nots are a quaint wildflower of the alpine regions of Europe, Asia and northwestern North America, this small fuzzy-leaved herbaceous perennial produces lots of flowers at the end of spring and throughout summer. A fantastic accessory to spring beds and borders, complementing golden and yellow flower beds. Forget-me-nots are extremely versatile flowers and as such are among the most shade-tolerant of all flower species.

SMALL SEEDS, BLACK COLOUR, EASY TO SEE. MIX WITH FINE GRAINS OF SAND IF NEEDED TO AID DISTRIBUTION OF SEEDS.
