I’m back again with more growing notes! As always, what works in my garden might be very different from what works in your garden. I’ve finally had success after trying to grow shirley poppies after three growing seasons! Now, I just want to share what I’ve learned! I’d absolutely love to hear about your experiences down in the comments!
NAME: Shirley Poppy (also known as field poppy, corn poppy, and papaver rhoeas)
Many ornamentals and cut flowers are TOXIC. Always do your research and be responsible any time you add something new to the garden. Be aware of what you’re growing around kids, pets, and everyone you love. Use common sense, always wear gloves, wash hands, don’t touch your eyes, etc.
HOW: Easy to direct sow. Easy to germinate using the winter sowing method, however, does not seem to transplant well. Prefers cool temperatures.
