When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

While much of the garden has been in suspended animation waiting for some rain, these poppies have never been so tall, so straight, nor had so many flowers 🌺🌺🌺 #papaver-orientale

Do you stake these as my flowers heads all seem to fall over before they bloom?

comment
awomanonabike

Hi Sean, yes I do. These are staked. You can just see the top of the metal stake (with a metal insect on the top 🙄) at the back and then if you look closely near the bottom of the photo there is twine wound round them in small groups. @SeanOC

7 Jun 18 • 😍 You’ve just got to love a #poppy and they are so easy to grow. These are on the edge of the bog garden next to the pond. They aren’t in full sun either, yet they have been thriving here for years 😍

I’m not sure what I’m more impressed by, the poppies or the greenhouse,...it looks so good aI think it’s better described as a glasshouse #glasshouseenvy 💚 xx

I’m very lucky Claudia. I bought it with some money my Mum left me when she died. She was a keen gardener so it seemed fitting and better than just adding it to the pot 🤔😊😊@clipperty

What a wonderful thing to do J. Sounds like she’d be thrilled and a tiny bit jealous 😂😊 xx

I thought poppies were sun lovers. This one planted itself behind a tree & has even managed to flower #poppy
