Description

These beauties were growing in our gardens here in Maine when we first moved here. Each year I save seed and sprinkle them around the potager. I’m rewarded with masses of beautiful flowers in early summer and masses of bread seed poppies for cooking as well. Flowers will be double, single, or frizzled and come in a wide variety of colors, from salmon to the palest of lavender.

Poppy seeds can be sown in fall or early spring. Some people swear by broadcasting them over the last of the snow before it thaws. I find that seed them in late summer or fall works best here in Maine. Poppies do not like to be transplanted and are best grown in place.
