Poppy Seeds

The flower known as the poppy cultivated for thousands of years. It was first grown by ancient Egyptians, who used its seeds to create an intoxicating drink called kyphi. Today, poppies are to produce opium, extracted seed pods.

What Are Poppies Made From?
Poppies are actually two parts: the pod and the seed. The pod contains the seeds, covered with a hard shell. The seeds themselves contain a substance called morphine, which is responsible for the drug’s effects.

How Do You Grow Poppies?
To grow poppies, you’ll need to start by choosing a location where you can plant them. Once you’ve chosen a spot, dig a hole deep enough so that the roots will go down at least 2 inches below ground level. Then, fill the hole with soil and add some fertilizer. Next, place the poppy seeds into the hole and cover them with more soil. Finally, water the plants regularly until they sprout.

Where Can You Buy Poppies?
If you’d rather buy poppies than grow them yourself, there are plenty of places to find them online. Many florists sell them as well. However, if you’d prefer to grow your own, you can purchase poppies from nurseries or garden centers.

When Should You Plant Poppies?
Poppies planted in early spring when temperatures are still cool enough to keep the soil warm. Recommended to plant poppies in full sun so they will receive adequate light.

How Long Does it Take To Flower?
Poppies take approximately three months to flower. During this period, the plants will produce large clusters of small white blooms. These blooms are called “pods” and each pod contains hundreds of tiny seeds.
