A few years back one of you dear folks sent me some poppy seeds that had colors that were different from mine. One turned out to be a VERY double pure white one. I am trying to start a "white" garden so ,of course, I was delighted. Anyway, I watched that one poppy very carefully as I have had armadillos digging in my beds almost every night. It finally got a seed capsule on it and I was thrilled. I collected the dried pod and checked it today. It was very black inside and I do not SEE a single seed. I am sure it was pollinated like all my others as I have lots of bees. Can anyone tell me why it didn't produce seeds? ( too late in the season?)
