Our Favorite Poppy Flower Seeds


We love poppy flowers. Not just the familiar papaver varieties, but also Hunnemannias, Eschscholtzias, and Meconopsis types as well. Below are some of our favorites:

Germination and growing tips for poppies
When you want excitement in June, consider Poppies, whose ruffled and shimmering petals pack more pigment than you can imagine. Plants Poppies in groups in a sunny, well-drained position and match them with summer bloomers or annuals that spread out and will conceal their early dormancy.

The best times to start growing poppies and plant seeds is either early fall, or in the first part of March. Planting in Fall will result in earlier blooms the following Spring, whereas planting in Spring will result in Summer blooms. Alternately, you can plant half your seeds in the Fall, and half in the Spring. Although the optimal germination temperature is about 60 degrees Fahrenheit, the seeds will germinate at warmer temperatures, but they germinate best when planted in cool to cold soil, the warming soil will trigger germination.

Do not start papaver types in warm to hot weather. Germination will be poor and plants may not grow, start them in late fall to early spring.

To plant, simply cast seeds directly on top of loose, moist soil. Press seeds lightly into soil, but do not cover them more than the thickness of the seed.

Be sure to be aware of all the creatures that will ruin your poppy growing experience. Birds, for one, like to eat poppy seeds. So you may need to put up a net above the seeds until they sprout. Or, you can start them indoors under lights or on a window sill. Poppies have very sensitive root systems and do not transplant well, so be sure to start them in Seedman's Seed Starter Cups so you can transplant them outdoors once they sprout, if you do not use the cups, then use deep trays or pots.

Keep the soil moist for the first couple weeks until you see the sprouts come up. Then, cut back on the watering, only watering thoroughly every few days. This helps the new sprouts develop a strong root system by forcing them to search for water deep below the surface. Plus, it lowers the chance of mold and root rot, which poppies are very susceptible to.

Be careful when watering not to wash away the seeds or any new sprouts. Water gently with a spray bottle, or use a drip system.
