1 x 1 litre potted poppy plant (64474)

Plant poppies in a sunny position in moist, well drained soil, working some well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil prior to planting.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season until plants are fully established. Leave faded flowers in place; the dried seed heads make an attractive late summer feature, and birds will appreciate the seeds as food. In autumn, remove old foliage and apply a mulch of well rotted manure to the base of the plant.
