Sow early spring to early summer or autumn outdoors where they are to flower. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Scatter the seed and rake in lightly.

When large enough to handle, remove any seedlings which are too close to each other so that they are 15-30cm (6-12in) apart.

 

Culinary note: Only the seeds of Papaver rhoeas are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

They prefer a sunny open site but will grow in most sites and soils. For the longest flowering period and to prevent self seeding remove the seed pods as the petals fall.
