Planting Outdoors

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

Where to plant poppies is critical to the success of growing them. They need to be in shade, in a sheltered site, preferably under trees or tall plants, where the soil is permanently moist. They do not usually survive in hot dry conditions.

 

Propagation by seed in Spring

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

Sow seed on compost and cover lightly with sifted compost. Keep moist. Be warned: the seed is like dust! For a longer flowering period, sow in succession, and you can get a display into late Summer. Alternatively, the seed can be sown direct into soil that as been dug over.

 

Propagation by seed in Autumn

From Early Autumn TO Mid Autumn

Sow seed on compost and cover lightly with sifted compost. Keep moist. Be warned: the seed is like dust! Alternatively, sow direct in soil that has been dug over

 

Flowering

From Early Summer TO Early Autumn

Poppies flower from early Summer right through to early Autumn
