Californian 'Poppy' Mixed (Start-A-Garden™ Range)

Eschscholzia californica, California Poppy

An easy to grow plant superb for bedding, borders and containers growing in a wide range of soils, in sun and rain. Planted en masse, plants bear a profusion of brilliantly coloured, silky blooms all summer long. Excellent for covering sunny banks and makes a good weed suppressant. Ideal for children.

Culinary note: Fresh or dried leaves can be used to make a herbal tea which is known to be soothing and relaxing. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Where to sow: Outdoors where they are to flower.
Preparation: Prepare the ground by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones.
Sowing: Sow 1.5mm (1/16in) deep, in rows 30cm (12in) apart or scatter seed in beds or borders as a gap filler. Lightly cover the seed.
Growing:When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 15cm (6in) apart. Water regularly until plants are established and especially during dry periods.
Gradually acclimatise eschscholzia plants to outdoor conditions when all risk of frost has passed before planting outdoors in any well drained soil in full sun. Water regularly until plants are fully established. Deadhead faded eschscholzia flowers to prevent them from self seeding.
