RHS Plants for PollinatorsVery pretty Save the Date white seed packet, made from recycled paper.  The seeds inside are British-grown British wild Field Forget-me-nots, in a paper sachet (no plastic and foil sachets in our products!).  The seed packet measures 9 x 12 cm and comes with a recycled envelope too, ready for you to address and post to guests.  In order that we can personalise the packet, please provide your wedding details in the box above.  Sowing instructions are printed on the back.

The seeds are viable for a few years so if you are not using them straightaway, simply store them somewhere cool and dry out of direct sunlight.

We love the delicate, summery design on the front!  You will also be helping the early emerging bumblebees by planting Forget-me-nots as they are a good early nextar source for them.

About Forget-me-nots

Forget-me-nots are best sown in the Autumn so that they flower the following spring.  They produce masses of tiny, delicate blue flowers with yellow centres.  Once you have them they will self-seed all over the garden! The plant’s Latin name – myosotis – derives from the Latin for mouse ear, which the leaves tend to resemble.

Forget-me-nots have been around since the late 1300’s when Henry IV took the plant as his emblem.  It was known as Scorpion Grass, according to the herbalist Gerard (1633),  because its flowerhead was thought to resemble a scorpion’s tail.  Therefore it was also believed to cure the sting of a scorpion, and snake and dog bites.

 In German folklore, a knight picked Forget-me-not for his love as they walked by a river.  He tripped and fell in but before he drowned he threw his love the flowers and cried  “Forget me not!”

In days of old, blacksmiths kept a bunch of Forget-me-nots in their forge to protect horses from injury.  In the language of flowers, Forget-me-nots are symbolic of true love.

Masses of small blue flwoers with yellow centres

Forget-me-nots are best sown in autumn so that they flower the following spring.  They can be sown on bare soil where you want them to flower, or you can start them of in trays of compost.  Once the seedlings are big enough to handle, carefully remove them and replant into bigger pots to grow on ready for planting out later.
