Pot up meconopsis plants into peaty compost and grow them on in bright, frost-free conditions with protection from strong, direct sunlight. When they are well grown, acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days, prior to planting out in their final positions. Choose a sheltered spot in semi or dappled shade - a cool, moist woodland situation is ideal, but the Himalayan poppy will also thrive in a moist, shaded border. Meconopsis prefers a rich, moist, neutral to acid, well drained soil that remains moist throughout summer, but does not sit wet in winter.
Meconopsis poppies particularly dislike dry soils and excessive heat. Water regularly during hot, dry periods to prevent the soil from drying out. In spring, apply a mulch of chipped bark, leaf mould or other organic matter around the crown of the plant. Deadhead faded blue meconopsis flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced.

  1. Mecanopsis Lingholm

    By Massimo Proia 11-06-2015

    I purchased Meconopsis last year in June. I potted it up straight away. There was very little growth. No trace of this plant this year. I have been buying plants from T&M for years. Some of them arrived in good conditions, while others have been just a waste of money. This is one of the latter!

  2. Meconopsis Lingholm

    By peter powell 26-04-2015

    I purchased my Meconopsis on 9/2/15. When they arrived they were very small plug plants I potted them up straight away and kept them away from frost. There was very little growth and one by one they shrivelled up and died. I am very disappointed. I spent £40.93. It would be nice if I had a refund. For most of my gardening life I have always purchased from Thompson and Morgan and I have always been happy.
