PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|California Poppy, Golden Cup, Cup of Gold|
|This drought-tolerant plant, with its finely divided grey-green foliage and very bright, shiny orange petals, looks wonderful near the edge of the border. Cut quite hard back after the first flush of flowers and it will quickly regenerate to provide further colour on well into autumn without becoming too straggly. They will happily grow in very poor soil, even gravel.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Californian poppies resent disturbance, so best direct sown March-April. Scatter seed thinly and gently rake into the soil. Thin as necessary.|
