Your poppies look so healthy. Mine keep going yellow. Not sure if they're too dry or too wet.

kez001uk

@ublaszko I must admit they get watered twice a day since almost all mine died last year from drying up 🙈

comment
ublaszko

Oh wow, twice a day! I'm only watering mine every 2-3 days 😰 I better keep up with it from now on. Only had 2 flowers last year 😰

comment
kez001uk

@ublaszko they are in small pots though so even quicker to dry out. But keeping the soil damp has definitely helped them all

3w
comment
ublaszko

Ok good to know! Mine are in a window box so also drying out quickly. I assumed they were drought tolerant seeing as they're California poppies 😁😁

@lovestogarden they’re the most beautiful poppies! Do these kind grow wild around your part of California?

3w
comment
lovestogarden

Not that I have seen Kerry. The ones I have always seen wild are the solid orange. The name, Mission Bells, refers to the Mission Bells that were placed to commemorate the 700-mile-long El Camino Real route linking the 21 missions, founded by Father Junipero Serra. It is part of California history. 💗
