Poppy Seeds

Poppies are such a familiar sight whether it's the red field poppy synonymous with remembrance or the more unusual somniferum poppy. They are all beautiful additions to the garden and attract pollinators too! Poppy (papaver) seeds are very easy to grow and can be sown directly into their final flowering positions in the garden. If sown from March to May they will flower in the same year whereas seeds sown from August to October will flower the following year. Dried seed pods make attractive additions to indoor arrangements.
