California Poppies are a charming addition to the garden and are easy to grow and require virtually no care. Self-sows freely. Ideal plant for borders, bedding, and containers or mass planting.

The California Poppy is the state flower of California.

For best results sow directly into the soil where they are to grow. If grown early indoors use a growing container that can be planted directly into the soil such as jiffy pots as seedlings do not like root disturbance.

Plant space: 30cm
Flowering: 8-10 weeks

Feed with a soluble fertiliser every two weeks for stronger plants.
