Learning Download: How to Grow Poppies

Poppies are an annual planted each spring that will bring a burst of color to the garden. Once planted, Poppies are easy to care for.

Planting: Direct sow the Poppy seeds outside in a poor to average soil. If you live in Zones 3-7, direct sow seeds outdoors in the early spring when a frost may still occur. If you live in Zones 8-10, direct sow in the fall.

Watering: Once Poppies are established, they do not require frequent watering. Overwatering will result in leggy and tall Poppies.

Fertilizer: To encourage the best Poppies to grow, fertilize the Poppies once a year and then top-dress the plants with an organic material, such as manure.

Days to Maturity: Poppies will begin to bloom late spring to early summer.

Harvesting: Poppies are typically not harvested as cut flowers because their blooms will not keep for long.

Tips: Poppies self-sow, and if you don’t want them to spread and sprout in surprising places, pull the plants from the ground once they have finished blooming.
