Meconopsis Cambrica Fl. Pl. Aurantiaca
The magnificent deep orange double form producing a long succession of flowers throughout spring. One of the top ten selling plants on our nursery. Will self-seed into places where it is happy and is quite perennial.
Sow these seeds immediately on receipt in a cool place keeping the pot or seed tray safely. DO NOT WAIT! It is fresh seed and always takes very many months to appear, usually coming up the following March, regardless of when sown. DO NOT use artificial heat, this will NOT cause quicker germination and may kill the seeds. The best strategy can be to simply finely sow the seeds where needed in the garden. In this way the small seedling always do better when they finally appear in the spring, being very difficult to germinate at any other time!
