Growing Oriental Poppies from Bare Root Starts. 4.21.18

These are poppy plants, from bare root starts that I bought at a big box store in January.  Two of the three plants survived an grew.  They are not as big and lush as the older oriental poppies in the yard, but I think they will bloom in a year or two.

  1. I grew one plant in Pennsylvania for 25 years from one sprinkling of seeds from a packet under a lilac or mock orange bush (can't remember). It would die back in the fall and come back every spring as soon as the snow melted and grow the most beautiful blooms!
