FLOWERS – POPPY MIX

Papaver rhoeas

Poppy blossoms are some of the most beautiful flowers you can grow. The petals are as thin & delicate as crepe paper. Do you have a special area that would look divine covered in Poppies? Not just one color or one variety but lots of colors & different varieties. This pack contains a blend of Shirley, Flanders, Iceland, and Peony types with a range of colors and types giving you an excellent array of flowering periods, heights and colors. These poppies will self-seed giving you a continual mix of poppies for many seasons to come.

Sow seeds in spring. Loosen the dirt up in the area that you are going to be planting your poppy seeds. It’s important to lightly water them every 3-5 days. After the shoots have come through thin them out, they will not flower well if this process is skipped. Once they are 5cm or so tall, move them to their final resting place. When they start to flower, remove buds to ensure that they keep producing blooms. In summer, let the seed pods develop to harvest seeds for the next season.
