A poppy is a flowering plant in the family Papaveraceae. Poppies are loved by bees and get their name because the flower buds literally ‘pop’ open in the morning sun.

Poppies are frost hardy, easy plants to grow from seed, punnets or small plants once you’ve picked the right one for your climate. Most poppies thrive in a full sun position and are easily cared for with regularly watering.
