Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • The beautiful Blue Poppy will grow best if you take care of it appropriately. Make a large hole in good, loose soil. Condition poor garden soil by mixing in some compost and cow manure grains. Plant the rootball of Blue Poppy at the appropriate depth in the hole. The top of the rootball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting.  The Blue Poppy grows best in a relatively cool, shady area and in nutritious soil.

  • Care
  • The Blue Poppy grows best in a moist, cool area. Complete sunshine and dry soil is not well tolerated. Cut off faded flower stalks since the process of seed formation weakens the plant. In winter, cover the plant with a layer of fallen leaves. In spring, cut off any unpleasant-looking leaves as soon there will be some new shoots growing above the ground. The Blue Poppy normally blooms the second year after planting.
