I love Poppies!

Transplanting Poppies – My Experience.

I transplanted my Poppy plants outside in the Spring when they were still very small. Most of them survived just fine. The well established Oriental Poppies that I moved around in my flower beds barely survived. Hopefully they will do better for me the next season. A few of the Poppy plants that I purchased from local Garden Centres survived okay but didn’t produce flowers their first year.
To enjoy your Poppies in a bouquet cut them just before they open and singe the bottom of the stem with a burning candle.
