Of all the perennials in our collection, these are my favourite. I am overawed by
their beauty and I never tire of studying their different shapes and form. They are
such versatile plants looking at home in both inner city gardens and country

Our special collection of Papaver orientale, which numbers over 150 different
varieties, is set in amongst mixed borders and presentation beds at our Nursery.
We have gathered our collection from many parts of the U.K., Europe and the
USA. These include the new and exciting R.H.S. Award of Garden Merit varieties
of ‘Aglaja’, ‘Effendi’, ‘John III’, ‘Khedive’, and ‘Leuchtfeuer’.

The newer varieties have been bred with care and consideration to promote
shorter, strong sturdy stems, longer flowering upright facing blooms, and
tolerance to our climatic changes of sun, rain and wind. There are now several
lower height poppies (12 to 24 inches. 30 to 60cm) which are well suited to the
small garden and which can still look very impressive in a large herbaceous
border as a front feature plants in country homes.

The colour combinations of the newer poppies are endless ranging from the
purest white, palest blush pink through the colour spectrum of pink, both
warming to salmon and cooling to old rose shades, and of course covering the
fashion shade of plum to purple.

For personal visitors our display beds and borders will be brimming with their
colour during May, June and July. Many Horticultural Societies from around the
U.K. and the continent of Europe visit us at this time of year.

Since 2000 we have introduced new poppies that we feel are different enough
and an improvement on the existing poppies for one reason or another example..
new colour breaks, lower growing height, upward facing flowers on firm stems,
with very good form, and most importantly longer flowering season.

Millennium 2000 releases. Brand new poppies bred in Hampshire which we think are
stunning. Think of a mid raspberry shade mixed with a little grey and you have
