Easy grown bright coloured annual flowers. Can be grown in flowerbeds, grouped with other flowers, or sown in the lawn.

Go well with cornflowers, chamomiles. Not demanding to soil, grow well even in poor soil in a sunny place.


  1. Choose the right time: Poppy seeds can be planted in the spring or fall, depending on your location and climate. In general, it's best to plant them when the soil temperature is around 50-60°F (10-15°C).

  2. Prepare the soil: Poppy seeds prefer well-draining soil that is slightly alkaline. Add some compost or well-rotted manure to the soil to improve its fertility.

  3. Sow the seeds: Scatter the seeds thinly over the soil surface and cover lightly with a fine layer of soil. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged.

  4. Provide light: Poppy seeds require light to germinate, so avoid covering the seeds too deeply with soil.

  5. Thin the seedlings: When the seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out so that they are spaced about 6-8 inches apart. This will allow them to grow and develop properly.

  6. Water regularly: Poppy plants need regular watering, especially during dry weather. Water deeply, but don't let the soil become waterlogged.

  7. Fertilize sparingly: Poppy plants don't require much fertilizer, as too much nitrogen can cause them to produce more foliage than flowers. Use a balanced fertilizer sparingly, or use compost as a natural fertilizer.

  8. Protect from pests: Poppy plants can be vulnerable to slugs, snails, and other pests. Use organic pest control methods, such as handpicking, or use a natural pesticide.
