The best time to plant bluets is on a cool or cloudy day, or in the evening. Ther prefer moist, slightly acidic soils but will tolerate drier conditions.
If you decide to plant in a container, use a shallow container. Spread the seeds in moist soil and cover with plastic or glass. Water regularly. After about 3-4 weeks, when the seedlings have emerged, remove the plastic layer and leave to grow for about a year. After a year, transplant into a forever home outdoors.
