How to look after Papaver plants
This is an extremely easy to plant to look after and requires very little care once given its basic needs. Water the plant well to keep the soil moist, but not wet. This Papaver is drought tolerant so will benefit from some underwatering. Prune the foliage only when needed and deadhead the flowers one they begin to die off.
