It is only to be expected that an elusive magical flower like this blue poppy is a little harder to grow than then normal varieties. The secret with this plant is to grow in a cool and well shaded area.This hardy perennial will grow to a height of 90cm (3ft). Sow in winter or early spring in good free draining seed compost covering the seed with a light sprinkling of compost. Place outdoors in a coldframe or sheltered spot.

Leave for about five weeks then bring into warmth of 13-18C. At two-leaf stage transplant seedlings to 8cm pots. Keep shaded from strong sunlight. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out when well established into deep moist loam in sheltered semi-shaded position spacing the plants 46-60cm each way.

Quantity: 50 seeds
