Flower Identification.
« on: July 31, 2011, 10:01 »
Hi All,

Earlier this year I was given some flower seeds and gave them a go.
They have turned out really nice and we want to grow them again next year but we have no idea what variety they are.

Can you help?

Poppies.

Can't tell you the variety though.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

 :lol: at DD.

save the pepperpot shaped seedhead that grows after the flower, cut it as it ripens, but before the seeds fall out. Later it will have holes that you can sprinkle the seeds out of :)

Best to sow them early autumn in my experience as they make better plants than those sown in the spring, and flower earlier too  :)

That's beautiful! I've never seen a poppy like that before. :)
