Zamnesia - Poppy Seeds: Grow Poppy At Home

Papaver somniferum, better known as opium poppy, is the flowering plant from which opium and poppy seeds are derived. It is believed that the plant was initially cultivated in the Eastern Mediterranean, although its exact origins are shrouded in mystery.

The flowering poppy plant is native to Western Asia and Southeast Europe. In these areas of the world, the plant is often cultivated, but it can also be found growing in the wild. Aside from being a source for making opiates, poppy is also grown for the seeds that you can find on various baked goods.


The opium poppy is a hardy annual that can reach a height of about 1 metre. The plant flowers in summer and sheds its seeds a few months later in autumn. The flower of the plant can take on various colours, including shades of red, purple, pink, and white. It makes a beautiful ornamental that looks great in any garden.


Papaver somniferum is a hardy weed without any special requirements—this makes the plants very easy to grow. You can plant the poppy seeds indoors in pots, or sow directly into soil outdoors, provided you allow the plants enough space for their roots to grow and ensure good water drainage.

The best time to plant your seeds is between September and April. Should you live in a climate with a cold winter, it is recommended that you wait until early spring to avoid frost. For germinating your poppy seeds, you can simply toss them onto fertilised soil and cover them slightly. Keep the soil humid and watered well until you see the seeds sprouting. This will usually take a week. Make sure you do not overwater to prevent fungus growth and rot.

    Muy contento
    Más semillas de las que esperaba.


    Beautiful plants


    Las semillas han empezado a germinar desde el 3 día, es verdad que han salido solo la mitad, pero la cantidad de semillas que vienen en cada paquete es grande como para que no importe demasiado.

    Awesome plants!
    I planted the seeds in mid march in my backyard. I didn’t use commercial soil or fertilizer at all and they grow really fast. First 2 flowers showed up today and I‘m very happy. Unfortunately slugs ate most of my seedlings..

    Seeds are growing well & i look forward to seeing what happens as they grow! Another great product, thanks again to the good people of Zamnesia!


    Tempismo imperfetto
    Purtroppo appena ho piantato il clima è peggiorato drasticamente e a causa della gelata ha germinato il 10% di quello che ho seminato Per fortuna sono 5gr di semi e ci riproverò appena il tempo si stabilizza


    99,9% di germinazione .
