Poppy seeds are best sown in spring or autumn where they are to grow. Sow thinly onto weed-free soil with a fine tilth and gently rake the seed in. Keep moist and weed-free until seedlings are large enough to thin to 30cm spacings.
Ideal for beds and borders, raised beds. Attractive to bees. Prefers full sun. Poppies benefit from sowing directly where they are to flower. If you are growing for the edible seed, do not remove spent flower heads
