California Poppy seed balls made in our Pennsylvania workshop with the most recent seed crop and a new process that we developed that specifically addresses the germination requirements of the California Poppy. Seed balls are about 1/2" diameter and are well aerated with ample nutrients, assuring good germination and early growth. The California State Flower, this poppy is an easy-to-grow favorite. You can sow any time of year, press 3/4 of the way into soft ground. The seeds are safe until the perfect conditions arise.

A note about seed balls:
Seed balls protect the seeds from erosion, foraging, and many other factors. This protective property often results in a slower germination cycle. Wildflowers are also highly variable in their germination rates. Please be patient with your seed balls. If you placed them in a suitable location, soil, and climate, when the seeds are ready, they will grow!
