Poppy Seed Sowing Kit - Poppy Time! From Dug Plant Box
We are excited to introduce our new Dug Box Kit - Poppy Seed Kit
It has everything in it you will need, to pot up 3 varieties of popular and pretty Poppies.
Poppies have been grown for many centuries. First for their medicinal uses, but in later years, because they look so nice. These traditional plants make fantastic garden plants and really are stunning either planted in a border or grown in a pot. Poppies, as with many plants, need a winter before they will flower. Sowing them this time of year is ideal, we grow them through the winter and will enjoy their flowers next year.
Let’s meet the varieties
Red Field Poppy
This is the poppy we all know and love. Sometimes known as the remembrance poppy, it was once found growing wild all over the UK. Thankfully, the numbers are up as the use of chemical in farming has reduced, this iconic flower is becoming more and more common.
Lady Bird Poppy
This lovely poppy has the same pure red of the field poppy, but as it shows off its flowers in the centre, you are treated to 4 black spots on the inside of the petals. This is a fantastic variety to grow in a pot. Once it has flowered, collecting the seed will give you plenty of plants for the following year.
A dwarf collection of poppies which grow to 30cm in height. This makes them ideal for a patio pot, or to grow on the edge of a border. This variety will flower many different colours including salmon, pink, orange, red and anything in between.
