Seedball Poppy Wildflower Mix is bursting with common poppy seeds. A bright red flowering annual – this hugely popular native wildflower is fantastic for pollinators and garden birds and a stunning addition to any wildflower garden.
Poppies are also a big favourite of ours for window boxes or for other small growing spaces.
Each Seedball Poppy Wildflower Mix ball contains around 100 seeds, and each tin will provide coverage for 1 square metre in a garden, or 3-5 medium sized pots.
Best scattered in the Spring or Autumn.
How do I use Seedballs?
Throw onto soil or compost in a garden bed or planter in Spring or Autumn, leaving at least 10cm between each ball. Your Seedball has everything it needs to grow and, once the ball becomes moist and the temperature is right, your seeds will then germinate!
Common Poppy (Papaver rhoeas)
A bright red flowering annual – hugely popular and often used as a symbol of remembrance.
Flowers: May to July
The remembrance poppy is the common field poppy, one of the first wildflowers to colonise disturbed ground or fallow cornfields. It became identified with the battle zones of the First World War, or Flanders Fields, which were originally corn fields.
As well as the Seedball Butterfly Mix of Wildflowers, there are many other options to choose from. To see more from Seedballs, click here.
