Item details

Discovered in the early 1880's, this beautiful single Poppy has become a firm favourite in British gardens. Shirley Mix is a blend of white, rose, red, pink and crimson flowers with delicate, papery petals which flutter in the breeze. Very easy to grow, they should be sown outdoors in autumn or spring.

Hardy Annual
Flowers: May to July (autumn sowings), August to September (spring sowings)
Height: 60cm, Spread: 25cm
Position: Sun, does best in poor soil

Packet of 500 seeds

Our seeds are hand packed in our unique, reusable, paper packets and a detailed growing guide is supplied to help you get the best from your seeds.


When to Sow: Sow March to June, or August to September outdoors in flowering position.

Sowing: Scatter the seed on well raked soil, rake in lightly and water. If sowing in rows, leave 20cm between rows. Germination varies with the time of year and conditions, but generally takes from 7-30 days.

Growing: When the seedlings are large enough to handle, thin to 15cm apart. To prolong flowering and prevent self seeding, remove the seedheads just as the petals start to fall. Otherwise, when flowering has finished in autumn, remove the dead plants, shake well to scatter the seed and rake the area lightly.
