Do you want to grow forget me not seeds in Connecticut, but don’t know when to start them?
Starting forget me not seeds is not as easy as it seems.
- Forget Me Not Seeds must be consistently watered, receive at least 8 hours of sunlight a day, & be kept at room temperature of at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
So if you don’t consistently water them they won’t germinate. If they aren’t in a room that is at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit they won’t sprout. And if it receives 8 hours of sunlight the plant itself won’t grow.
- Because Connecticut’s growing season is not long enough, forget me not seeds cannot be sowed outside and should only be started indoors.
Because of this, I’m going to teach you the ideal time to start forget me not seeds indoors in Connecticut:
