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 sominferum, true red|
|Opium poppy, true red|
|The picture really doesn't do justice to the colour of this opium poppy, which is a true, rich red with a black centre. The seeds were gathered from a plant that appeared well after the other types in the garden had been and gone, so hopefully cross-pollination will have been at a minimum.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Direct sow in autumn or spring, in a sunny position, thinning to about 9-15in apart.|
