Oriental poppies are tall plants that feature enormously decorative blooms, of which gardeners deserve to be justifiably proud. Often, they are a brilliant scarlet and a focal,point for the entire garden. So, if they fail to bloom, their lack of an appearance makes for a sad garden indeed.
But don’t despair. If you’ve recently transplanted your poppies, they can take a few extra seasons to catch hold. Make sure they don’t have too much mulch to work through and that the soil isn’t too soggy for them. It may take a year or two for your poppies to like their new home and to show it by blooming, but they should do so, eventually.
- Oriental poppies are show-stopping plants, but transplants can be tricky, taking up to several years to acclimate and bloom.
- It’s important to make sure the water is somewhat drained, as they do not like soggy earth.
- Also, if there is too much mulch around their roots, it could be difficult for them to work their way upwards.
