Hello, I have some Blue for-get-me-nots that will be getting here in Sept. what I need to know is should they be placed in the back of a border(along side of house) or spaced though-out. I hope that makes since as this a repeat order as the last ones didn't come up. They come in little pots with a few leaves so Do I mulch them or just place them in the ground?

For-get-me-nots are only about 12" tall in bloom, so I'd place them in front. I mulch mine lightly with pine needles so they will reseed (which they will do very well.) I started out with 2 small plants and in 3 years have dozens that fill up an 3' area. I let them come up wherever they like...inbetween plants is nice because their airy blue flowers look nice and don't hide other plants.
