I would love to see photos of poppies in your garden beds and landscaping. I'm especially curious of how people are using poppies in their front gardens as I'm thinking of incorporating them into my front beds this year. In the past, I've only grown them in cottage garden out back where I can get a bit more "crazy."
Poppies mix well with everything. There's a size and color of bloom or foliage for everyone's taste. The best approach is to scatter seed. Every kind you can get and every place you can toss it. Some will grow and some will not. The only way to find out is toss a bunch and see what works. Winter (now) sowing works well. Orientals are a bit different, being perennials. Good luck.
NO, not boring at all! what is the blue in the picture with number four? All of your poppies are just beautiful, I am going to have to try one more time this year to get more varieties to grow for me...
I assumed that since the annuals I planted (That probably won't even come up...they hate me) would die out as it got hot. So I was wondering what else should go in with them to keep the dying plants hiddedn and color in the bed. Any tips?
balvanie - if anyone thinks that is boring then they are on the wrong forum ( or dead !). What beauty. I cannot get my camera to focus on more than one individual bloom with being fuzzy. Your colors are so sharp !
