All About Baby Blue Eyes

Latin

Latin
Nemophila menziesii
Family: Boraginaceae

Timing

Timing
Start indoors, in peat or coir pots, 6-8 weeks before planting out. It’s probably simpler to direct sow in early spring, when a chance of frost is still possible. In mild winter areas, seeds can also be direct sown in the fall. Ideal soil temperature for germination: 12°C (55°F). Seeds should sprout in 7-21 days.

Growing

Growing
Cool, moist, light, well-drained soil is best. Grow in partial shade where summer soils get hot. Plants can die from excessive heat. Nemophila may self sow if conditions are right. Barely cover the tiny seeds. Aim for plant spacing at 10cm (4″). Tighter spacing is okay for this small species.
