Mr Fothergills - Wildflower - Poppy - 2000 Seeds
This variety is ideal in that it can be sown where it is to flower. It is easy to grow, evocative and a popular British favourite. It is ideal for naturalising, and looks spectacular in drifts.
Sow outdoors from March to May or August to October, where they are to flower, 0.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Thin them to 15cm apart and water well until plants are established. For a continuous display, make sowings at two to three-week intervals. Sowings made in curves, rather than straight lines, often create a more pleasing effect. Late summer and autumn sowings will flower the following year, often earlier than spring sowings. Flowers from June to September.
