Hi, can anyone identify this beautiful flower for me please? Many thanks.




Hello, it's Myosotis scorpioides (forget-me-not). A nice spring flower, it will no doubt seed around once flowering has finished and then you will have more next year :-)

Many thanks. I actually spotted it in my local cemetery, I knew it was quite a common flower but couldn't think of its name. I might buy some seed if I see some as it's really nice. Thanks once again.

You are welcome. If you wait until the flowers die and you see grey flower seeds, I'm pretty certain you will be able to collect the seed and sow them in the autumn or next spring.

hi i found with the rotating ones if they get too heavy in time they will split the plastic.why not try the dalek one take up about the same room plus you put it in the top when its ready you take it out the bottom but make sure it is stood on the ground and not slabs etc that way the worms help as well but it is up to you in the end good luck.sorry wrong person question.

I don't think it is Myosotis scorpioides, which is Water Forget-me-not. It's more likely to be Myosotis sylvatica, Wood Forget-me-not, also the plant most likely in gardens etc.
