How to Grow Nemophila from Seed

The Victorians loved Baby Blue Eyes, this dainty two-toned flower with its airy, light green foliage is ideal for rockeries, hanging baskets and other containers. Nomophila are very easy to grow and tollerant of dry conditions.

Baby Blue Eyes can be sown direct in late Spring to early Summer, or sown into pots in Autumn.

An outdoor autumn sowing of Nemophila will often provide earlier flowers than an indoor sowing made the following spring. Autumn pot sowings should be raised in a cold frame or cold greenhouse.

Sow in pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not wet; germination will usually take 14 to 21 days at 20°C (68°F).
