Growing Poppies: A Short Personal Story
You shouldn’t be intimidated about growing poppies. I grew some by accident, and I definitely don’t have a “green thumb.” I had purchased some poppy seeds for baking, and I spilled some in my kitchen. I swept them up and dumped them in my outside garden. I didn’t dig holes in the dirt, I just sprinkled (actually threw) the seeds on top of the ground. This “garden” was actually a big dirt pile in my back yard where a bush was previously located. The dirt was even poor quality, and it was about 70% clay. The plants actually sprouted, and I was so shocked that I tried to dig up half to put in my good garden. I’m glad I only dug up half because none of them survived the relocation. I didn’t water the original surviving plants until the had grown up to around 6″ tall. The plants ended up doing fairly well, especially given the circumstances. I wanted to share this story at the beginning so you could see that growing poppies isn’t difficult if you have the correct seeds (don’t worry, I include Amazon links below).
