Poppy Shirley Mix form large silky single and semi-double blooms, many with picotee edges and colours of salmon, rose-pink, crimson and red. The ruffled, papery flowers and fernlike foliage create a delicate effect in a cottage garden, and are a magnet for bees.
Sow direct where they are to grow as these plants do not transplant well. Scatter seed thinly over soil and barely cover with Yates Black Magic Seed Raising Mix. Firm down and water with a fine mist spray. Thin crowded seedlings after germination.
Choose a well drained position in full sun but sheltered from the wind. Pinch out early buds until the plants have formed good clumps. Remove spent flowers to promote further blooming. Water at the base of the plant to avoid disease.
Plant height 60cm | Germination 10 - 14 days | Flowering 20 weeks
