opium poppy growing thread
    #3879135 - 03/06/05 08:42 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

starting a thread for opium poppy growing. gonna go get some seeds in a couple weeks north of the border. wondering when to sow the seeds, what to expect, when to expect harvest. lets get some good info and experiences going.

i'm a decent horticulturalist. grown many plants, including papaver somniferum and cannabis. i know a few things about poppies as i have grown them once before. i dropped the seeds in a 4x1ft raised planter. they sprouted, but yellowed at about 4-6in in heght. probably due to no drainage holes in the bottom of the planter (poppies need a well drained/and or sloping planting spot)

now i plan on sowing many seeds in a garden. it is VERY quality soil, and drains pretty well. 100% full sun (in a field) a VERY nice garden. GREAT soil. we're talking prime growing. anyway, i am wondering the prime planting time for poppies. also, wondering if i should plant a couple different strains (gargantua, persian whites, hens and chicks?) how many grams of seeds should purchase for about 20x10ft (200 sq ft)??? i need some help...

when should i expect to harvest my pods to make some O tea? i was thinking mid summer. need some input, lets get this going...
