Pot Full of Poppies is an all-time favourite poppy mix - a classic, easy to grow mixture for any area.
Not surprisingly, this is one of our most popular mixtures, combining six poppy plant species with a sprinkle of blue and white wildflowers to create the perfect meadow blend.
Poppies have fantastic self-sowing abilities so this mix is a great choice for those looking for a low-maintenance option, particularly effective in fields and large empty spaces. The mix thrives best with 30-40% sunshine and will grow in most soils.
This poppy mix contains bright red ‘Soldier’ Poppy, Glamorous pink, white and bicoloured Corn Poppy, Golden-orange Poppy, Creamy White Poppy, Mission Bells, Mahogany Red and mixed colours. Plus 10% white Baby’s Breath, Californian Bluebells & white Alyssum.
Annual or perennial borders, driveway edges or any existing or new sunny garden area needing extra colour, whole fields or empty large spaces. (Note – as Papaver seed is very fine, smaller amounts are required to cover specific areas)
