Detailed Product Info

This rich poppy is one of the many varieties in our Breadseed Poppy Mix, but the rich color and single and double blooms were just too irresistible not to offer as a single variety! Seed outdoors as soon as the soil can be worked for blooms in late spring and early summer. Poppies prefer cooler temperatures, seeding any later than your last frost date is not recommended.

Growing Instructions

For best results, winter sow poppy seeds or sow in very early spring in a prepared garden bed. Thin seedlings to 12-18" apart. Alternately, start indoors in early spring by pressing the seeds into the soil, but do not cover them. Keep in a cool place. Transplant when small without disturbing the roots. Once flowering, water infrequently.
