Even though I’ve been growing cut flowers for several years now, I’m constantly able to find new-to-me flowers. These firmament forget me nots, or cynoglossum amabile, were certainly no exception. Admittedly, this wasn’t my first attempt to grow these flowers. It was, however, the first time I was able to grow them and see them bloom.
I planted one package of seed last fall, which amounted to about twenty plants. I sowed them in trays around the end of September her in zone 6. I transplanted them into the unheated hoophouse around mid October. I’m not certain whether or not a hoophouse would be absolutely necessary, but I really wanted to pamper them and make sure that they made it through the winter.
I’m still learning more about these gorgeous little blooms. So far, I’ve only used them to create a few bouquets.
