I can plant poppy bare roots and they take fine, als oNative  Poppiues just seem to grow but I cannot grow Californian or Iceland ones.  What am I doing wrong?  They don't even germinate.  Can I germinate them on a kitche towel instead?

I got my dahila and amaranthus from last years flowers in my garden, I got my poppy seeds fron next door,  (we regularly swap seeds, flowers fruit and veg )my other neighbour gave me  2 packets of love-in a mist and Aubrita from her free seeds  with Shreded wheat.  In  return i take her sweetpeas every few days.    My marigolds from my mum-in-law- 5 packets of DT brown seeds free with the Kitchen Garden magazine and free gloves and potato kit and 5 seeds all in the same issue.  I had Cosmo Purity from GW Mag, I also bought seeds from Thompson and Morgan and Mr Fothergills.  I once raid in GW that a generous gardner is never poor.  I totally agree, I have made new firends, kept in touch with the neighbours shared advice, tips and produce,and got a huge amount of pleasure from the garden.

I must be doing something wrong, my yellow ones have fallen off as they rooted, yet my patty pan squashes are doing great.

Question - if gardeners didnt have the weather, and pests and weeds  to complain about what would be the next topic of discontent?

opps forgot to say why, basically becuae I grow them from seed and they need very little attention and look amazzing.  I have loads of other stuff, I never use pesticides and we have a diverse amount of wildlife include slowworms, beetles earwigs, ladybugs, cattapilars, hoverflies, lacewings, bees, quee bees, honey bees butterflies, moths, toads, may slugs, spiders and worms, but the house sparrows tend to be fat and happy x
