You'll be sure to collect your own seed from this poppy mix. It is striking, elegant and the contrast of colours pops in part shade and/or full early morning or late afternoon sun locations. Appreciates cool roots so adding compost to assist them will increase plant size and lessen the need to water and weed. Excellent long-lasting mix that is sure to be the center of attention.
Surface sow in early Spring. 1 mm deep. Germination 10 - 15 days. Easy to grow and care for. Keep moist but not wet. If you intend to collect the seed for eating, please see the note below in the medicinal category. To collect for sowing wait until seedpods have completely dried on the plant. You will see the pod has formed little openings, like a salt shaker signalling the seed, is ripe and ready for harvest.
