Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews
A gorgeous lilac selection, with large, 7-10cm (3-4in), fully double flower heads, standing proudly above glaucous foliage, followed by large, attractive seed heads. Best sown in large drifts, as an easy to grow annual border filler, adding height and interest.

Culinary note: All poppies are poisonous. However the seeds produced from Papaver somniferum and Papaver paeoniflorum can be eaten and are used for adding extra flavour, crunch and bite to breads and cakes. The seeds of other poppy species are not edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Caution: Harmful if eaten.
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 thinly onto the surface of the soil and lightly rake in.
Growing: When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to 15-30cm (6-12in) apart. Removing spent flower heads will encourage further blooming.
CAUTION: All poppies are poisonous. However, the SEEDS produced by this specific variety can be eaten and make a great topping for bread, and are an essential ingredient for lemon and poppy seed muffins. Write to us for a free leaflet with recipes for a wide range of edible flowers.
