Product Description

Grow Heirloom Poppies - Plant The Giant Poppy Seeds

This variety of Poppy somniferum gigantium seeds, known as The Giant is the variety of poppy most often cultivated for culinary use and baking. The somniferum poppy is prized for the amount of seed produced by individual pods, suitable for baking and making oils. However, this Poppy's culinary uses are overshadowed by the spectacular blooms it produces! The somniferum variety of Poppy Seeds dazzles in your garden with a large, double petaled head, often referred to as a "peony flowered" poppy because of the fullness of the bloom.

Poppy Seeds - The Giant

Excellent germination rate. Looking forward to seeing them in bloom.

Tons of GIANT poppy

The secret to planting in Zone 9 is to germinate the seeds in a refrigerator for 2-3 weeks, in damp (not soggy) sand or perlite, in a plastic bag or suitable container. With Eden Bros. seeds I had, what I can only imagine must have been a near 99% germination rate. I was thinning these guys out for 3 months! Careful! This is GREAT seed, very virulent, and it will pop up anywhere you throw it down. Once blooming, I was greeted with a beautiful off-white and pink bloom. The plant on whole was between 3.5 and 4 feet tall. Truly a giant.

Poppy Seeds - The Giant

I planted these flowers by taking a pinch and spreading it out over small areas at a time. It would appear that all have sprouted, as I do not have any gaps in the area I planted them. I'm hoping they are not too close, as I'd hate to have to thin them. So far, they've survived 4 below 32 degree frosts, with a few more predicted to come. Very happy with the germination rate of the seeds.

Incredible Germination Rate

I am preparing my seed stock for next year and for a sampling I took a small corner of the garden and spread a small amount of seeds. They seem to have all come up and are growing with great speed. I am confident that next spring will show a grand germination and spectacular beauty later in summer. I will stay with Eden Brothers for all my needs for seeds!
