Cultivation Advice POPPY PAPAVER SOMNIFERUM SISSINGHURST WHITE

  • Seeds can be sown from late summer to late April.
  • Prefers recently disturbed soil with good drainage.
  • The species does not transplant well so scatter the seeds sparingly and cover with a very fine layer of earth (rake in).
  • Water well until germination, keeping the earth moist.
  • The young seedlings grow fast and look like baby lettuce to start with.
  • This variety does need space to grow, ideally about 30cm apart, but they will thrive on less if well watered, so thin well to at least 15cm between each plant.
  • Dead head to encourage further flowering.
  • Cut the heads once mature and hang to dry or leave to re-seed.
