The Meaning of Forget-Me-Nots

Forget-Me-Nots symbolize true love and represent a promise that you will always remember a loved one. I named my farm in memory of my mum, my love for her and to remember all the time spent together in our family gardens.

Gifting someone forget-me-nots let's that person know that they are in your thoughts. Keeping this flower around your home surrounds your space with infinite love and maybe even bring up beautiful memories. Plant forget-me-nots by your doorways to bless your entrance ways with love and to remind you to live from your heart space.


Forget-Me-Nots are low growing plants of the borage family. They have tiny five petal blue blooms with yellow centres though sometimes they come in other colours. These humble little plants bloom from May to October. Most forget-me-not varieties are biennials, which means they self seed creating new plants on in the spring. Grow these special flowers in partial shade with good drainage and provide ample water.

These beautiful small flowers will pop up in different areas of your garden surprising you with their delicate details throughout your landscape. Enjoy forget-me-nots year after year reminding you of true and undying love.
