Thank you very much for a rapid delivery!I have had a bad experience with mail ordered plants before, which were not good quality to start with and died within a week of their arrival but this time I was really impressed with the quality of the plants ordered; as the weather was not suitable to plant them, they have been sitting in my garage for three weeks now and they are producing lots of shoots and leaves and look really strong.They are worth every penny! I will definately recommend your nursery as I was so impressed with your service.It's a shame I did'nt find your website before.

Pollinator Friendly

Stunningly beautiful. Near black fully double flowers rise on tall stems. And after the flower the seed heads form which look similarly wonderful.

As a cut flower they will last at best 24 hours - so unless it's a really special occasion this is a flower to enjoy in the garden! The seed pods will, of course, last indefinitely so can be used in dried flower arrangements.

Plant en masse for a truly stunning display.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Flowers June - August.
  • Grows to around 2-3 feet (60 - 90 cm) tall.
  • Plant 14" apart.
  • Thrives in full sun.
  • Prefers well drained soils - is particularly good on poorer soils.
  • Hardy annual though can prove tender in very wet winters.
  • Provided they are grown away from other poppies they will set seed quite true to type.

Please Note
Cultivation of Papaver somniferum is legal in the UK - the harvesting and processing of it for the production of drugs, legal or otherwise, is not!
