Description Sowing More Info Delivery
This beautiful hardy annual bears its open, cup-shaped flowers from June to September above a basal rosette of blue-green foliage. Each delicate bloom is palest pink with contrasting lilac blotches at their centre. As the flowers fade, they are replaced by attractive seed heads that enclose the edible seed that can be used when baking breads and cakes. A charming addition to cottage garden borders. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Flowering Months
Feed and water poppy plants frequently throughout the summer. Opium Poppies self seed freely. Deadhead faded poppy flowers if seedlings are not required. Caution: harmful if eaten.

 

Culinary note: All poppies are poisonous. However, the seeds produced by somniferum and paeoniflorum poppies only can be eaten. Typically, they are used in bakery recipes. For more details about edible flowers click here.
Direct sow Poppy seeds outdoors where they are to grow in spring or autumn. Choose a position in full sun on fertile, well drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow seeds thinly, just below the soil surface. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes 7 - 14 days. When Poppy seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to 30cm (12") apart.
