help!! seed harvest Question

Orofino, ID(Zone 6a)

All the breadseed poppies are setting their pods...I don't want them to self seed so if I pull them up now is there any chance of the seed drying & being good???? there's a couple of threads regarding this subject but no one came back to say if it worked or not.. any experience with this??? Thank you....Deb

All you have to do is miss three or four, or having a very gusty wind when the pods are ripe, and you'll have your poppy field back in full force.

Generally pods have to dry and be on the verge of cracking open before they would be of any value for saving but since I'm not a poppy pro I'll wait to see the answer along with you.

Pirl is "right on" about poppy self sowing.Anyother plant too.
You would have to wait until next spring to weed them out if you dont want them.
It takes a bit of a thug to be a gardener.
