How to grow
How To Grow From Seed: Cynoglossum Amabile seeds germinate best if they are evenly spread into loosened bare ground and kept moist. Plant Chinese Forget Me Not seeds in fall where winters are mild (seldom dipping below 10 degrees).
Chinese Forget Me Not can also be sown in early spring in colder climates after frost season has passed and night time temperatures are starting to stay warm. Cover the flower seeds lightly with a quarter inch or less of good, quality of soil, and keep the wild flower seeds moist.
