My morning walk has reminded me that it’s time to sow forget-me-nots (Myosotis sp.). I want to add them to the garden for their edible petals, which are the floral equivalent of confetti, although I don’t think they have any flavour to speak of. I bought my seeds last year…
…at quite the wrong moment to sow them. I had to get two different packets to get the full spread of colours! For some reason the wild ones haven’t made themselves at home in the garden.
This one is, I think, Green Alkanet, which has similar flowers to the forget-me-not, but more blue. It has very different leaves (and is a larger plant). It can stay in the hedgerow.
And the cowslips are out. I have one or two plants in containers, which I rescued from the old ‘lawn’ before we started building the garden. I need to find them a permanent home!
