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).

Papaver somniferum, red, single
Opium Poppy, red, single
Type/Hardiness Annual, Hardy
Flowering period June-August
Height 36-48in/1-1.5m
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Light, free-draining
Sowing time/depth Autumn or Spring, barely cover
Harvested from deep-coral-pink plants with a darker eye and occasional fringes, but although common varieties growing near these were removed as soon as identified, it cannot be guaranteed that all these seeds will breed true - however, a very reasonable proportion should do so.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Direct sow in autumn or spring, in a sunny position, thinning to about 9-15in apart.
