A humus rich, moisture retentive well drained neutral to slightly acid soil is required.
Grow in partial shade which is sheltered from cold drying winds.
Keep the plants well-watered and mulch generously to retain soil moisture.
Meconopsis are short lived perennials. To ensure the plants flower over several years it is important to prevent the plants flowering in the first two years by pinching out the growing tips. This will produce strong multi-crowned plants that will flower for several years.
Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers. Grows well in sun or shade. Unlike annuals, perennials and shrubs will put on a show not just for one season but for many years to come. They are supplied as large, healthy Potted Plants.
