Angel's Choir Poppy
Papaver rhoeas. This glorious mixture of exquisite double flowered poppies is the result of almost 10 years of breeding work! In soft colours, from whites to a full range of pastels, this mix is easy to grow in the border or in large containers. Height 24-30". Approx 500 seeds/pkg.
Start inside 4-6 weeks before last frost in peat pots. Cover seed lightly and provide darkness. Poppies dislike transplanting, best direct seeded once the soil warms up to 21 degrees C. To plant, cover seed with 1⁄8 inches soil. Transplant or thin plants to 10-12 inches apart in a full sun location.
Do not over water or fertilize. Deadhead regularly. Poppies make good cut flowers if you singe the cut ends with a candle flame to stop the flow of sap. Self seeds freely.
