Planting Poppy “Bulbs”


Anonymous added on February 24, 2017 | Answered

I am not certain when planting two oriental poppy bulbs, which I received last week as a present, how to plant them. They are very thin. Which end of the bulb is planted deepest? In other words, which we up is the bulb planted? Jim Birnie

Poppies do not grow from bulbs. In fact the plant develops a tap root from which the plant will spread from.
You can make divisions of existing plantings and replant.
If you received the dried poppy seed pods, you can shake the seeds directly into the garden to direct sow.
