The Iceland Poppy has large, lightly fragrant, floppy flowers in various pastel colours opening on thin stems in great profusion in earliest spring. The flowers last for weeks but dead head to allow more buds to develop.
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
