I have just been given some seeds for next year, and not sure if I should throw them in the ground or wait till next year!
I have had them growing once, and my friend who gave me the seeds said they just go wild each year and multiply.
I think they are very pretty so will scatter them somewhere.
I have a black thumb, so flowers are a big no for me in general. If I were to be honest about, I don't really see the point of flowers. They serve no real function unless they are indoor plants and are being used to improve air quality. I much prefer growing (or attempting to grow) food.
I haven't, but I remember my mum had a little California Poppy patch in our back garden when I was a child. I much prefer the red wild poppy and there is nothing more beautiful than to stand in the middle of a field of wild poppies with nothing but scarlet as far as the eye can see - absolutely gorgeous!
Rice - although we're from Scotland, my husband, son and I lived in a village near Thetford in Norfolk for several years before coming to Australia. It was a very rural area with heaps of cornfields covered in poppies - what a glorious sight it was. Nothing has compared to it since I have to say - and none of it manufactured by man!
