Listing Detail Tabs

Poppies can be sown Spring &/or Autumn .

If you would like THREE different packets/colours/types of my Poppies please check out my listings - I have an auction for 3 pkts at a cheaper rate than if bought separately.

This single Tasmanian Poppy grows to over a metre tall with very, very pale lavender flowers.
The flower petals have three 'blobs' of a darker lavender in the middle.

It is recommended that these plants are started in Spring or Autumn.
They are frost and, snow hardy. I know this as we had 4 inches of snow here in the winter of 2011 and none of my plants were effected!

I prefer to start seedlings in punnets (though they can be sown directly onto the ground where you wish them to grow)

Put seed raising mix into a punnet (or two) water and leave to settle for at least 15 minutes. Gently firm down the soil and add a bit more seed raising mix(the mix will have sunk).
Carefully scatter about 20 of the seeds onto the surface.
Fine seed usually doesn't require covering.

Always water by spraying with a fine sprayer (any old window cleaner type spray bottle is fine as long as it has been thoroughly cleaned before use).
It is important that the surface soil doesn't dry out before germination.

Once the plants are at the four leaf stage (and conditions are right) they can be transplanted into the garden - put a stake in first then plant the poppy beside it.
They require minimal care once established.
