Poppies, just Poppies …..



I am not usually a fan of ‘blousy’ flowers but I do love Poppies, however fleeting their appearance – annual and perennial ! I even love the seed heads …








A couple of years ago my collection of oriental poppies was stricken by a virus that sadly saw the demise of several, I am endeavouring to reinstate them ! I grow my annual poppies in pots and plant out when they are big enough to survive … if I put the seed straight in the soil I forget where I have sown them and trample or hoe …. or creatures feast on the seed ….
