How to Plant Poppy Power Mix

When to Plant Poppy Seeds

Poppies do best if planted directly outdoors in their intended location rather than transplanting them. However, if necessary, they can be started in biodegradable peat pots indoors before the last spring frost. The entire peat pot can then be planted outdoors once the poppy seedlings are established.

In growing zones 3 — 7, the Red Corn Poppy, Shirley Poppy — Mixed Colors and the Shirley Poppy — Mixed Double seeds can be planted in late autumn or early spring when a light frost is still possible.

In zones 8 — 10, these poppy seeds should be sown in late autumn or winter.

Where to Plant Poppy Seeds

Poppies only need soil that is ordinary and moist, but well drained. They also do well in full sun.

How to Plant Poppy Seeds

Poppy seeds require a cool period to break dormancy, and some gardeners choose to cold stratify their seeds. Learn about cold stratification here.

Papaver Rhoeas act as perennials in moderate climates, but they perform as annuals where freezing temperatures and snow occur in winter. These poppies germinate most successfully in cool to moderate temperatures and they are, in fact, frost tolerant. Poppies flower best under cool spring weather conditions. Bloom decreases on poppies as temperatures increase in summer months.

The seeds should not be planted deeply; they just need to be compressed into the soil, as they need light to germinate. The best method for planting is to mix one part seed with 5 parts sand and scatter over the prepared growing area.

If planting in rows, then plant the seeds 6” to 8” apart.

How to Care for Poppies

These varieties of poppy seeds generally germinate in about 20 days. You can thin the seedlings to 6” to 8” apart after they emerge.

Poppies should be watered regularly, but they can tolerate dry conditions. It is not necessary to fertilize poppies.

It generally takes about 60 to 90 days for poppies to bloom after the seed is planted. This timing depends very much on your growing zone and when you plant, along with Mother Nature’s cooperation. The bloom season for poppies is spring to summer. Poppy plants will bloom for a few weeks, but the length of bloom time can be extended by regular watering and application of mulch for moisture retention, as well as regular deadheading of spent flowers. It is also recommended that the seed be sown in successive plantings to extend the bloom season of the poppies.

  1. Waiting for them to pop out

    I bought this mix and planted them last weekend. Hopefully they will all come up and bloom through the summer! The service was great and I got the seeds pretty quick. Ordering more!

  2. Love my Poppies!

    These Poppies are stunning! I live in Jamestown, Colorado at 7,500' and the Poppies are spectacular. I get compliments on the Poppies all of the time. They are still blooming in October.

  3. Sprouting Poppies

    Our seeds are planted and beginning to peep through the soil! I love Poppies and can't wait for these to come to full bloom and do so every year! Prices here are awesome!!

  4. Mostly Good

    Had very good blooming rates with everything in this mix except Iceland Poppy. My friend - a green thumb - has opined that I am simply in too warm a climate for it to grow (GA). Everything else came up nicely, and I'm hoping for a healthy re-seeding.
