Organic Poppy

Etheric stems and elegant petals in an exquisite array of colors endear us to poppies endlessly. The bees agree! They love to swim in the small ocean of pollen-laden anthers inside each flower. Poppies thrive in gardens as well as raised beds and containers, even in partial sun and marginal soil. A gently re-seeding annual, poppies often have a perennial presence in your garden, though establishing poppies from seed is often challenging. At Fruition, we sow most organic poppy seeds in soil blocks indoors 2 months before final frost to transplant 1 month before final frost, since they love to establish in cool soils, including fall.
