Why Poppies?

Here are a few good reasons to start growing poppies in potted containers around your home and garden areas.  These are such lovely and wonderful growing flowers but we hope we can add a few more tips to your already growing list of reasons to start planting them now!
 
They are bursting with bright bold colors. Even if they have floppy petals they are stunning to look at. How about the fact that they will continue to bloom with color long after most spring flowers have faded.

When mixed among evergreens they will provide that splash of color that just may be needed to finish the
potted  look you may be going for.  After they open you see their little black faces poking out and smiling at you.  Then you know that summer has finally arrived.

As they fade their colors become bolder and their colors are intense pinks, reds, oranges.  They are easy to pot and easy to grow in planters.  They need a bit of attention but what they give in return is well worth it.  Just sprinkle their seeds along the surface of the soil in the pots.

You can separate them out after they start to grow.  Select an area with sun or partial shade to place the planters.  Use good potting soil. Water as necessary and fertilize if needed.
