This may not be the biggest or blousiest of the #oriental-poppies but it makes up for it with such a gorgeous colour and always so straight 💗 #papaver-orientale #papaver-orientale-pattys-plum #pattysplum

They are gorgeous can I ask do you have to dead head them ? I’ve got Poppy’s for the first time this year, bought from a market so no care instructions

I don’t know if you have to but I do. I usually just chop the whole plant down to the ground once it starts getting tatty. The new leaves appear fairly quickly and I’m told you can sometimes get a second flush of flowers, but I never have 🤔 @loveofplants

A damp start to the morning here. We’ve not had as much rain as I had hoped but the plants have loved it 💜

We’ve had the wettest winter followed by the driest spring 🙄 so yes please, do! They are aren’t they. There were some in the garden when we moved in but this one I got at Harrogate. They don’t last long but they make up for it with impact 😃 @pelly

They certainly do. Mine are a bit late as I only scattered the seeds a few weeks ago 😍

Thank you Pauline. I have finally started to actually think about where I plant things and it seems to be paying off 😉😂 @flof1952

Gorgeous poppies ! I missed mine this year . I have had them come out for the last ten years and this year they never appeared . I don’t know why but they were missed .! Anyone any ideas . They were always so strong and a beautiful addition to the garden

Oriental poppies are perennial Jane. I’m not as lucky with the annuals but will keep trying as I would love them to self seed 😃 @pelly

26 Jun 2019 • I’ve only been away a fortnight but whoosh! A combination of lots of rain and then warmth and everything has grown. It’s like a jungle out there. What have I missed? 🤔 So much to catch up on and so much to do 😃 I almost missed these but there’s a couple of flowers still to open 💕
