Common poppy design and color is bright, is a very high ornamental value of ornamental plants, and potted plants can also be used as a garden plant. Common poppy is mainly propagated by sowing. Now, let's look at the propagation methods of Common poppy.
It is usually grown for 2 years. The flowers and plants of the same genus are all taproots, few fibrous roots, and not resistant to transplantation, so the application of direct propagation, if the need for garden layout. It is best to use the nutrition bowl or small paper basin seedling, even pot or basin transplantation, otherwise it is difficult to survive or poor growth. According to the climatic characteristics, decide the sowing propagation time. The northeast region is cold, sowing propagation can be in spring as early as the initiation. Seeds are small, sowing to fine, the use of drill, row spacing 25-30 cm. In the severe winter the surface of hay covers cold. The optimum temperature for seed germination is 20℃.Home propagation can live in the pot.
In spring and autumn we can apply sowing propagation, under normal circumstances, spring sowing in March to April, flowering in June to July; Autumn seeding is from September to November, and flowering is from May to June of the following year. In order to collect seeds, it is best to sow in the autumn. Soil arrangement should be fine, do bed pouring permeable, and then broadcast or drill. Because the seeds of Common poppy are small, the soil should be leveled and beaten fine when sowing. After sowing propagation, it is not necessary to cover the soil, but also a thin layer of sand can be covered. Soil thickness is no longer visible, seeds should be appropriate (0.2-0.3 cm). In North China, it is difficult for seedlings to survive the winter due to the severe cold in winter, so direct seeding in the "Minor Snow" in early winter is usually adopted, so that seedlings can germinate and grow as early as possible in spring.
