Description

Papaver somniferum ssp. setigerum, the poppy of Troy, has the reputation of being a wild ancestor of the opium poppy which is commonly cultivated for food and medicinal applications. This poppy has bristly leaf lobes and is of low and graceful
stature, the plants are up to 50 cm high. The seed capsules are oval and only about 1cm high. The flowers resemble opium poppy blossoms.
Content: 300 Poppy of Troy seeds
Cultivation and sowing:
Poppy of Troy is sown from March to April directly in the garden or field. Sow the seeds broadcast and only lightly cover with soil. Poppy does not like to be transplanted and rarely survives this procedure. Likes loose garden soils and grows particularly strong with good nitrogen supply. It is also possible to sow poppies in autumn - the plants overwinter and bloom then next year
