Thompson & Morgan Poppy Coral Reef 45 Seed

£2.99

Poppy - Coral Reef

A chance discovery on T&M research grounds has led to the introduction of this spectacular new true orientale poppy. This variety features large, vibrant flowers of an intense and vivid coral pink, which have never seen before in true orientale poppies and rarely matched in the entire flower kingdom. Unlike many orientale poppies available, because it has been bred from seed it has consistent vigour, with many flowers over a long flowering period. It is a long lived perennial making large plants within 3 years. From a late Autumn sowing it will flower in its first summer, coming true from seed. In a mixed orientale poppy trial the bees had apparently been very active as a red flowered hybrid produced several plants of this vivid pink. T&M's breeders got busy and Coral Reef was born!

Germinate from February to May at 15C on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Do not cover seed. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 10-21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination. Transplant seedlings, when large enough to handle, into 7.5cm pots. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and then plant out 3cm apart.
