Poppies (Papaver) are lovely and cheery garden flowers
Poppies (Papaver) are lovely, cheery and colourful garden flowers. Although their delicate tissue paper like flowers don’t bloom for long, one always seems to take over where the other one left off, providing a long flowering period from late spring to early summer. Add a touch of whimsy to your garden by planting poppies. Poppies are very decorative, even after flowering. As they develop beautiful seed pods and self-seed easily.

The Poppies we offer at flowerbulbsinc.co.uk are perennials (many papavers grown from seed are annuals). The classic red variety is extremely popular. We also sell Papaver Forncett Summer, which have bright pink, unusually shaped flowers with black hearts. Papaver Patty Plum is also lovely. Some perennial poppies we sell require semi shade to grow well. Be sure to follow the planting instructions on the package carefully for optimal results.
