The Dalemain Gardens may be closed at present, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy our famous, beautiful meconopsis Blue Poppies this year.

We are delighted to be offering a ‘click and collect’ service for green fingered enthusiasts to purchase their very own blue poppy plants. Simply place your order and then collect from 9am – 5pm on either Monday or Thursday from the courtyard at Dalemain. Please email houseopening@dalemain or telephone 017684 86450 to book your collection slot, so that we can ensure staff and visitor safety. If you would like to add marmalade or any of our wonderful gifts to your order, please do, and we’ll be happy to have these ready for you too!

This strain of Meconopsis is peculiar to Dalemain. A most stately plant, with gorgeous shades of blue.  Growing to about three feet in height, the poppies will slowly bulk up to form large clumps.

Meconopsis Grandis prefer damp (but not boggy) conditions, and benefit from an autumn mulch of well-rotted manure or leaf mould.
