Saw this plant growing under a tree and nabbed a stalk. Anyone know what it is?

    Forget-me-not
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Aka myosotis, self-seeds till the end of time.

    thanks. Yes definitely that. Hopefully the shoot puts out some roots and i can plant it.

    It won't put out shoots, go back to where you got it from and get some seed in a few weeks.

    Are the seeds you get in packets more compact than the wild ones?
    The whole truth is an instrument that can only be played by an expert.

    I think I'd start with a good strain from a packet, they seem to get weedier as time passes

    Are there any varieties/strains you would recommend nutcutlet? So this shoot wont root? shame. will just have to go back in a few weeks then.

    It's an annual/biennial Ynnead, has to be grown from seed each year but once you've got it, that's it, it reproduces itself. I don't know any variety names, sorry. But there will be an assortment of packets at the GCs probably not much to choose between them

    ok thanks nutcutlet. I checked chiltern seeds and they have some varieties. I usually prefer to grow plants by seed.
