Papaver rhoeas
FLOWER-POPPY-FLANDERS is an annual flower with cup-shaped, four-petalled, single blooms in bright red held aloft on single stems. These delicate, papery flowers emerge like a butterfly from a hairy chrysalis & will fill any mixed border with plenty of color & warmth. Best when planted en-masse, they will keep flowering over a long period, generally, around 20 weeks from the sowing of seed. Good as a cut flower Flanders is also known as Corn poppy & Field poppy. The flowers are used to commemorate the First World War.

Seeds should be sown directly into the garden or pots in which they are to be grown as they don’t like to be moved.  In pots, use a premium potting mix but in the garden, dig through lots of manure & compost so that it is nice & rich. Level the soil by tamping down gently with something flat & then scatter the seeds over the top. Cover the seed with a layer of seed raising mix that is only about 2mm thick (not too thick as the seed won’t be able to push through).  Tamp this down again & water with a gentle spray.

More About Us

ABSeeds is an Australian owned business trading under the umbrella of Direct Compost Solutions which is owned and managed by Victoria Brun.

We as a company endeavor to provide to the public, Organic, Old Fashioned, Heritage, and Open-pollinated seeds that have not been genetically modified.

We purchased the business in November 2018 and renamed it to ABSeeds (All ‘Bout Seeds) to make the title shorter and represent what we hope to achieve with this business in the years ahead.

Seeds that we can’t grow ourselves we will acquire from people who grow for us, or we may purchase seeds from reputable heritage seed companies.
