Nobody can be immune to the beauty of the himalayan poppies. Often challenging to
establish we are lucky that they thrive in the Cumbrian climate, with well drained
soil and a high rainfall. Recent hot summers have not been to their liking but in
a shady spot that does not dry out in summer they are happy.
We aim to keep a good selection of the garden worthy varieties on the nursery. However
success in germination and winter survival tends to be feast or famine. The foliage
is fragile in growth and we do not therefore currently offer by mail order.
