I have had little luck keeping Iceland poppies pushing blooms and looking good. I am beginning to think they don't like loose fertile soil, water, or fertilizer. There are a couple of places around town apartments etc. where they look great. I stopped and checked the soil and it was moist and looked like good soil. So I'm stymied I have great success with all other flower varieties so whats up anybody know? We do a lot of prep, compost, peat-to lower Ph. osmicote slow release fert, alphapha pellets-for enzymes, and superbloom every 3-weeks.
