Description – A long-standing favourite, the traditional poppy has been given a colour makeover. In shades of grey from slate-blue to silver, award-winning Poppy Amazing Grey will add wonderful colour contrast to your borders this season.
Sowing – Sow from February to May at 15°C (59°F) on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Do not cover seed. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 10-30 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.
Growing – Transplant seedlings, when large enough to handle, into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and then plant out 30cm (12in) apart.
Aftercare – CAUTION: All parts are poisonous.
Flowers – May to June
