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

Papaver somniferum

Me too. I thought I had spread them thinly but they all seem to have germinated and it’s like a patch of grass under there 🙄😂 @sieveheadsarah

😂 I can’t complain. We have had a glorious summer while the rest of the country had rain so we were in desperate need, however it can stop now! @sharonhayden

I don't think so Charlotte, they need sun and good drainage, I do sprinkle seeds every year in the shady part of the garden (just to try) but they never grow ☹️ @charlotte
