Sowing: Direct sow Iceland poppy seeds in early spring, planting on the surface of the soil since this seed needs light to germinate. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which should occur within 10-14 days. Do not attempt to move seedlings, since they resent having their roots disturbed. For an early start, start the seed indoors in peat pots 6-8 weeks before the last frost and plant outdoors.
Growing: Water seedlings occasionally until they become established. Mature plants tolerate drought well and grow well in dry or gravelly soil, though they also flourish in average soil. Do not attempt to move the plants, since they do not transplant well. A layer of mulch will help keep the soil cool, since this plant does not appreciate high heat. It is highly frost tolerant, and survives temperatures up to -20 degrees F. Deadhead flowers to extend the blooming season. This plant often self-sows, and is highly attractive to bees, butterflies, and birds.
All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.
