^_^ Thank you, yes very pretty the petals also come in pink and white too.

Just look for the seeds Myosotis scorpioides (Myosotis palustris) and sprinkle in pots or straight on the ground, rake in and water every other day, daily if you live in a dry area.

They are a native plant to the USA too. They bloom in May through to October. Forget-me-not plants often grow near brooks and streams and other bodies of water which offer the high humidity and moisture that is desirable to this species. (or if you live in a wet zone like the UK)

Use the forget-me-not plant in areas that are too wet to support the root system of other flowers. Growing forget-me-nots will include watering those planted in drier areas.

I hope that helps :)www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornam…

Wow you know alot about plants. I have asthma aggravated by strong smells (flowers, perfume, etc.) so I usually avoid flowers. I still like to look at them though. Thank you for providing the beautiful pictures.

You're welcome ^_^ - have you done the pollen tests yet? (roughly £50 in the UK)

The doctors will test to see what you're allergic too (or what exacerbates your asthma).

Me? I'm allergic to Leyland cypress tree sap (known simply as Leylandii) and rapeseed (Brassica napus) pollen.

The misses has Asthma (uses the purple, brown and light blue inhalers), but we are lucky enough for her to be only allergic to rapeseed (Brassica napus) pollen and, (touch wood) nothing effects her asthma as yet).

Begonia, cactus, clematis, columbine, crocus, daffodil and geranium are some of the most allergy-friendly plants and flowers.

I don't recommend spider plants or mother-in-laws tongue (usually grown indoors as house plants to clean the air) as the flowers on these do give off a strong scent, but you can remove the flower stems before they start to flower.

Try just one of those plants in the house *(before bringing it in the house, remember to heavily water from above (or leave them out in the rain) to wash off any other pollen or flower smells that have settled on it).

Or try growing them from seed/bulb,  that way you can guarantee nothing has settled on it. 

We do grow quite a few plants in the garden (usually more than required), we also swap plants with the neighbours (free is always so much better than garden centre prices).

Shout if you'd like any help ;)

Failing that, perhaps silk flowers?

Oh maybe I'll try that. I did do an allergy test and they said I'm allergic to 3 types of pollen and strong smells. I live in Hawaii so there are alot of flowers here,I never really thought to grow my own. Since I can't have a pet (allergic to fur and feathers) maybe I'll try and grow a plant. Thanks for the advise!

You're welcome - we have a very large family with lots of sufferers of different things, (I'm not a know it all - honest - I just asked my mum (she's now 62):P).

If you're allergic to pets too, try a Yorkshire terrier - they have long hair not fur, and ideal for allergy sufferers :) - see if someone has one locally you can go round to meet.

ours seem to grow very well where there is partial shade. :) ooo can't wait to see them when they come out - good luck :)

Ours are from a little plant from next door (we did a plant swap) we planted it about 4 years ago,and now they are everywhere where there is a little bit of shade.

I love Forget Me Nots(Not's?)! I am currently trying to grow some, but I think it's gotten too hot for them. :(  But a lovely photograph regardless!
