I've grown poppies for several years and this year I had several "things" I hadn't seen before show up. One is this kind of frazzled pom-pom looking thing with red in the center, the others I'll post below.
I have been using these little mesh bags to collect seeds. So far they work great for columbine, lupines,delphinums, hellebores etc. They come in various sizes. I am going to try them for my favorite poppies this year.
