How to grow

How To Grow Bugloss From Seed: Start Bugloss flower seeds outdoors in full sun and in any moist, but well-drained soil. After sowing, cover seeds with topsoil the thickness of the seed and keep moist until germination begins.

Cut back top-growth after flowering to encourage the development of overwintering basal rosettes. Dead-head after the first flush of flowers to encourage a second flush. Most species resent excessive winter wet.
