MECONOPSIS ASIATIC SPECIES MIXED
This is a generous mix of all of the rare and flamboyant Asiatic poppies we grow. All colours are here from reds and yellows to white and blue, and all will perform best if you make the effort to prepare a deep, well manured, peaty bed, preferably in the shade.
Seeds can be sown at any time, but for a full season of growth are best sown in trays in early spring. Cover seeds thinly in a cool spot, artificial heat is rarely needed as this can cause rapid germination and fungal attack. Seedlings usually appear within 3 to 6 weeks but can take much longer. Pot on into small pots and protect from hot sun. Plant out into a shaded, moist, peaty or organic soil. Many are herbaceous, dying down to a large, resting, winter bud.
