Ask a Question
  • Mine never bloomed two years in a row don’t know what I’m doing wrong

    Hi there - so sorry to hear this! It could be any of a wide variety of factors, but poppies like very arid environments - they grow in dry, windy climates. If your microclimate is too damp and they don't get enough air circulation, this could be the case.

  • Purchased Thai Silk and Amazing Grey poppies. No instructions on tube and no mention of need to cold stratify. Hoping to plant this in spring. Thanks

    Hi there! The planting instructions are printed on the inside of the tube. With that said, you will want to sow these seeds when its still chilly outside or put them in the fridge for a couple weeks before planting.
