Paeony Poppy (Papaver Somniferum flowered mix) 2000 seeds (#1044)

This poppy is a very ornamental plant that is often cultivated in the flower garden. In cool temperate zones the plant does not produce sufficient of the narcotic principles to make their extraction feasible and cultivation of the plant is perfectly legal in Britain. Plants have ripened their seeds as far north as latitude 69°n in Norway.
The seed yields 44 - 50% of an edible drying oil. Very good for lighting, it burns for longer than most oils. The oil is also used in paints, soap making etc.
Prefers a rich well-drained sandy loam in a sunny position. Requires a moist soil but does not do well on wet clays. Prefers a sandy loam or a chalky soil.
Plants often self-sow in British gardens. Sow spring or autumn in site.
This plant contains a number of very toxic compounds, many of which are extracted and used as pain killers etc in medicine. They are also used to make various highly addictive narcotic drugs. However, in the cooler climate of Britain these compounds are not formed in sufficient quantity to make their extraction worthwhile. There are no toxins in the seeds.
Grow corn poppy in full sun and fertile sandy loam or a chalky soil with average moisture or moist and good drainage. This is a true wildflower, so plant it as such by sprinkling its seeds in worked up ground.
