Well captured Amy it is certainly popular!
Did I tell you about the Blue Meconopsis seeds you sent me, they flowered while you were away, absolutely beautiful Pink lol a suprise but love them, if you back track you will see pictures I posted, must be one of those plants that dont come true from seed. Do they reappear each year or should I plant more seed for next year, The Direma cutting you sent is doing very well;0)

Thanks everyone , I think I cancelled one Linda because I hadn't put it on my plant list last year .. I put it on which meant it showed twice so I cancelled one ... problem solved .. lol.........

Carole , I've been to look at the pics. I missed and somehow it's happened again ! that's not a Meconopsis it's an ordinary Papaver , how strange is that !! To answer your question The Blue Meconopsis do come blue every year but are not ever so hardy depending where you live so it's worth taking some seed each year in case they are lost in the winter ... also you shouldn't let the blue ones flower in their first year ...although I find it hard to cut them of in bud , I cut some and leave some ....... I will send you some more seed , I'm so sorry about that .. I'm pleased the Dierama are doing well I noticed one of mine on flower today .... :o)

Amy I love the raspberry pink ones so wasnt disappointed just suprised. The cutting of the Direma you sent me is still in a pot I am not planting it out until Autumn and the everlasting pea plants are doing great starting to climb the fence now ;0)
