How big of a pot will I need?

isomanJuly 9, 2011

So I've recently moved into an apartment and have no room for any plants other than a few pots maybe. I have a couple different annual poppies that were really pretty in the garden I used to have but, wasn't certain how big of a pot I would need for them like do their roots grow really deep or wide? So do I need a wide or deep pot?

You don't say which species of poppy. I think not less than 12 inch pots would look good, for most poppies. Not because of the root size, but because most poppies need to planted as a group, or they look really wimpy. Al
