Flowers

Poppy 'Shirley Mixed'

Large single and semi-double flowers, many with picotee edges and colours of salmon, rose-pink and red.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

Direct into the garden position as these plants do not transplant well. Scatter thinly over soil and cover lightly with Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down and moisten.

Care

Choose a sunny, well-drained position. Add Thrive Granular All Purpose Fertiliser for best results. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser fortnightly. Pinch out early buds until the plants have formed good clumps. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem.
