Grow edible poppy seeds for baking!

5 out of 5 stars Mar 27, 2020
These actually grew, produced seeds and are so much cheaper than buying poppy seeds in the grocery! I have a lot of trouble growing poppies from seed and of all the varieties I have tried these did the best and had the added bonus of using to make my own lemon poppy seed muffins!

Beautiful but short lived

These poppies were big and beautiful, but the flowers themselves only lasted about a day before they crumpled and blew away. I'm excited that their heads are so large, I'm hoping that this means I will get lots of seeds once they've dried up.

Lived up to expectations

These were my first poppies to bloom and were a gorgeous color. I started them as a winter sowing project and transplanted them without a problem. Will sow in fall and winter again.

Amazing Tulip like flowers

I'm in zone 6a. I directly sow these in ground in early May. I now have an abundance of purple tulip like flowers in late June. They are better at tolerating heat then some other poppy varieties. And they are upright without the need for staking. Definitely growing them again!

A bit floppy, but So beautiful!

I planted these in appropriate sun and soil and most of them sprouted. I had beautiful poppy flowers on looong stems that would irregularly and fell over 1/3 of the time, but the leaves were healthy and blossoms delicate and beautifully colored. I suggest planting with tight fencing, other flowers, or close together to avoid the flopping.
Beth from MD
Owner Response: Hi Beth, Sowing these in full sun (6 or more hours a day) will help plants to be less floppy. Floppiness can also come from excess water. Happy gardening!

Did not grow

I purchased the Hungarian Blue Bread Seed Poppy Seeds, and followed the instructions for planting but nothing ever sprouted. I am not sure if it was the seeds or my soil.
Christine from MI
Owner Response: Hi Christine, We are sorry you had trouble germinating these seeds. A customer service agent will email you to help. Poppies germinate best when sown in fall or winter, ahead of warm weather. As a reminder, they should be surface sown as light aids germination. Rest assured that our seeds are tested frequently by a third-party laboratory to ensure germination rates exceed federal and our own standards.

Grown many types. These are aggressive seeds. May even be GMO free. Most are not
James from ID
