Poppies/ Papaver


Annuals & Biennials



Papaver somniferum “Sawyers Mixture”

Peony Poppy, Breadseed Poppy


Packet containing 100mg

Average contents 250 seeds.

Hardy Annual



Bloom Time:                Late spring to early summer

Height:                        90-100cm (36-40”)
Spread:                       25-38cm (10-15”)

Soil type:                     Well-drained/light

Position:                      Full Sun

Aspect:                        West or south facing. Sheltered.


This is a fantastic mixture of both the single and double form of Poppy. The flowers bloom in a breathtaking palate of rich colours, red, purple, and mauve.


The pods are excellent for creating dried flower arrangements, and the slate blue seeds taken from the pod can be used in both baking and middle-eastern cooking.

The plants grow to between 3 to 4 feet high, are easy from seed and the flowers are highly attractive to bees and other pollinating insects.




Grow in deep, well-drained, fertile soil in full sun. Enrich soil with manure, compost or bone meal ahead of planting, (or any organic fertiliser rich in nitrogen). P. somniferums grow quickly; give sufficient water to increase both the number of flowers and their individual size.

Although these poppies gobble up the nutrients, their eventual show will be more than worth the proper environment.


Sowing Instructions:      Sow in pots in Autumn or directly in Spring

For Autumn planting sow seeds in peat pellets or newspaper pots, poppies do not transplant well at all because they have very sensitive root systems. Seeds germinate in less than two weeks. Keep moist at all times, transplant to larger pots as seedlings grow. Plant out in Spring

Otherwise, sow direct where they are to flower in spring (at around 20*C / 68*F) in short drills ½ in deep.

Cover lightly with soil, mark the sowing areas with a ring of light coloured sand and label if sowing more than one annual in the same bed.

The seedlings will appear in rows approx 6-8 weeks after planting and can be told from nearby weed seedlings quite easily.



Thin the seedlings out so they are finally 30cm (12in) apart by early summer. Be ruthless, just  leave the biggest and most healthy looking. By doing this, you'll get more flowers and pods per plant that are bigger and stronger.

Poppies don't need to be watered too often, but when you do water, give it a nice soaking. This will promote strong root growth.

After about 6 to 8 weeks of vegetative growth, add a high Phosphorus fertilizer for the flowering stage.



The most serious problem for these poppies is root rot. Excellent drainage is a must. Snails find the young leaves very tasty, so a snail deterrent is recommended. They can be prone to grey mold, but usually this is only a cosmetic issue. Once they get established, P. somniferums are very hardy.

Poppies will begin to bloom 10 to 12 weeks from the time you plant them. Their pedals will drop after about 48 to 72 hours. The pods will continue to grow for the next couple weeks. During this period, it's very important not to water them unless absolutely necessary. Once pods turn a bluish tint with a white film on top, they are ready for harvest


Plant Uses:

Cottage/Informal Garden, Flower Borders and Beds, Flower Arranging


Other Information:

The seeds of this plant can be used in cooking but if eaten raw, can cause mild stomach upset.
