How life has changed for you since then, Rich, and for the better. I wonder how much this app influenced you? 🤔😘

Aw, thanks @Justin! 😊🙌🏼 I really can’t believe it was that long ago myself, I think our gardens have come on some way since then 👍🏼

It has Barbara, I’m quite certain this app has played a significant part in that change. I lost interest in gardening quite a few years ago whilst having a very demanding job, but it was a gradual reintroduction through this app which sparked the interest again and really accelerated it - to the point I’m now studying horticulture 😲 if you asked me five years ago where I saw myself I’m not sure I would have guessed it back then! @jacaranda

Lots of forget-me-nots this year - self seeds very easily! I have large clumps of it all over the place #myosotis #forgetmenot #myosotis-sylvatica

Likewise - lovely when they flower, carpeting the ground and showcasing (things lie) erisymum Bowles Mauve...and this may sound odd, I like it when they go over and you pull them out for the next wave of loveliness, whatever it might be! That's a satisfying job!

I have a few of these and just bought some pink seeds. Would they be ok under hedges or do they need a lot of sun?

Hi @helenforshaw - all mine spring up everywhere and neither condition seems to effect them. Most pop up in the shady part of my garden although that is mostly down to me removing seedlings from other areas. I think they will be fine although watch that they don't dry out too much if you putting them under a hedge. 👍🏼

My Forget-me-nots pop up all over the place, and I tend to leave them be to self seed and find their own place in my garden. The seedlings are easily recognisable and as biennials they flower in their second year. 💙 #blue #myosotis #forgetmenot #myosotis-sylvatica
