Description

The attractive 'corn poppy', or Papaver rhoeas, also has many other common names including corn rose, field poppy, Flanders poppy and red poppy. This is the fast-growing poppy which quickly produced flowers amongst the trenches in the world wars and which is used to commemorate the soldiers who fell and is still sometimes so abundant in agricultural fields that it may be mistaken for a crop!

Sowing Advice

Simply sow the seeds where needed. You can mix them with fine sand before sowing to make them go further as you broadcast the seeds. Seedlings do NOT transplant very well
