Why won't Forget-me-Knots grow anywhere were I am around?

In forty years of married quarters around the world I've lived with various soils in various climates but Forget-me-Nots don't bloom for me.

Even when I've taken over a quarter where they have already been flourishing they have died off within a couple of years.

They are virtually weeds which grow wild, but not anywhere where I am around.

I had the same problem with my alpine strawberries last year.

You can have some of mine they spread all over

  morddwyd 18:37 05 May 2012

Exactly. They're virtually weeds, but they don't like my presence.

Now if it worked with dandelions I could go into business!

morddwyd No matter where you are in the world, if we wait long enough I'm sure that mine will eventually reach you. They are like the Taliban, they pop up all over the place.

If you are free could you possibly come and sit in my garden to get rid of ours. I could provide you with a tiny fishing rod and a pointy hat so that you could sit over the koi pond at the same time scaring next door's cat off ;o}
