Description

Our Easy Grow range of flower, fruit and vegetable seeds have been specially selected for superb performance with minimum fuss! Perfect for beginner growers and experienced gardeners alike, these reliable varieties are easy to germinate and grow to maturity, delivering colourful blooms and bountiful crops with every packet you sow.


Hardy annual Poppy 'Ladybird' was developed from a species introduced from Russia in 1876 by our founder, William Thompson - and is still as popular as ever! Brilliant scarlet red petals are set off beautifully by the contrasting black spots at the base of each petal. Although each bloom last only a few days, more fat, hairy buds are constantly rising from among the clumps of finely cut foliage. This fabulous Caucasian Scarlet Poppy is so easy to grow and holds an RHS AGM for its superb garden performance. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 15cm (6").

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