Sow the seed thinly 3mm (¼") deep direct into finely raked, moist, warm, weed-free soil where the plants are to flower. Germination usually takes 10-14 days. As the seedlings develop, thin them gradually to achieve a final spacing of 15cm (6"), removing any competing weeds. Remove dead flower heads as they appear. Poppies will grow readily in most garden soils in a sunny position.
Ideal for beds and borders. Attractive to bees. Grows well in sun or shade. Deadhead to prolong flowering, or allow seed pods to ripen if you want to harvest your own edible poppy seeds.
