California Poppy, Red Chief (Eschscholzia Californica) Seed are incredible easy to grow flowers, making them perfect for someone wanting to start gardening, or also a younger child. These seeds produce flowers with an intense red color that pop agains the blueish green foliage. This particular strain of Poppy grows shorter than others, reaching a height of only about 10 inches, which makes them perfect as a border flower in a garden bed. They are regarded as one of the most popular wildflowers to be grown in gardens, and will continue to bloom from June well into August, and sometimes even September.
When sowing, make sure to put them in an area that receives a large amount of sun, and in soil that is well-drained. Germination will take anywhere between two and three weeks, and if growing indoors, once the baby plants are large enough to move, they can be transplanted outdoors. Make sure that the weather has considerably warmed before moving them outdoors, and that the final frost is well behind you. If you do sow them indoors, they should be planted in February or March, and if planted immediately outdoors, anywhere between March and May is fine.
