California poppy – Appleblossom Chiffon (Organic) ***NEW FOR 2024***

£2.30

A stunning and unique variety producing mainly double flowers of creamy rose and cranberry. This is a new variety for us and we really love it. It’s a real show stopper. It flowers over a very long season, especially if picked or dead-headed. California poppies are drought tolerant so very low maintenance.

If using as a cut flower it acts as both filler and thriller due to its delicate lacy foliage.

California poppy tips: Poppies do not like to have their roots disturbed so its best to sow them direct.
Seeds can be broadcast onto well-prepared ground from early April and raked in gently to cover the seeds. Alternatively they can be sown in drills 20cm apart and thinned. This way it is possible to use a hoe to weed in between the rows.
They should be placed in full sun.
