Papaver Rhoeas, Common Poppy is also known as Flanders Poppy, Corn Poppy, and Field Poppy, the classic meadow flower that most people recognise and used during Remembrance in November. Will also work well in flower beds, flowering from June to August.
This annual prefers a period of cold to help with germination and soil disturbance if sown in previous years but will not tolerate shade.
Scatter the seed where you want it to flower and make sure it makes contact with the soil to help with germination.
Sow directly into your garden in spring or Autumn somewhere in a sunny spot, weed-free. Scatter the seed where you want it to flower and make sure it makes contact with the soil to help with germination.
If limited on space a large pot looks great but sow thinly, the soil conditions also don't need to be rich.
