Description: Annual 1m. Cottage Garden Edible Seed. This poppy is a single mauve one, and it’s been selected for the size of the seed heads and so the amount of seed contained for cooking with. They are far larger heads than the more ornamental varieties, however the heads themselves are extremely ornamental and make great dried flower arrangements

Planting Instructions: Plant into trays early Spring and Autumn. Do not cover seed with soil. Prick out to 2.5 cm diagonal spacing and transplant very carefully (roots do not like being disturbed) when 3 cm high at 20 cm diagonals spacing. Will self seed readily.
