and my poppy hasnt flowered this year!!! :-(

My poppies haven't been that great either. They have flowered, but very sporadically and they seem smaller (the plants) than last year. I'm not going to continue to buy them now, I shall enjoy these while they last, but I don't think I shall ever have them right through the border, so I shall give up on that dream. I'm introducing some digitalis instead...and none of them are flowering either lol ...it's a job that required patience this gardening lark!...oh, almost forgot to say - this one is lovely Amy. Lovely intensity of blue! :D

Gorgeous, thought I'd lost mine that you sent me Amy, but they are still there just no flowers this year.

Pretty Amy. Sad to say I didnt get any of your seeds to germinate.

Kathy/Amy - quick question, I bought some ladybird poppy seed a few weeks ago, instructions say to grow where they are to flower but would prefer to sow in seed trays and pot on, what do you think?

I had a ladybird poppy plant I bought it at the Sandringham garden show a couple of years ago , it sadly didn't grow the next year , If I have any blue poppy seeds this year I will save you some Dawn I can't see that it would matter if you grow your poppies in a tray , put some in a tray and then save a few to sow in a spot out of the way somewhere ,remember where you put them LOL . that way if they grow you will have more seed for next year .. they don't always flower in the first year Kathy in fact I read somewhere that you should nip the buds off in the first year ,I'm never brave enough to do that !

Ooh gorgeous colour Amy, like the other girls, mine haven't come this year....:((. I've been waiting for my White one to come, but no...maybe next year....:))

beautiful Amy, love these...

Mine neither. I was very sad, as Shirley was so kind last year and sent to me some seeds from her beautiful poppies and I seeded it in my south oriented part of garden and although they started to grow, they died or what, as I do not see anything now.
