Sorry for ambiguity nutcutlet, I meant that I/we/anybody can grow the seeds from a commercial supplier, but I can keep the plants themselves going because of the relative isolation of where I live. My question is about whether this is a good thing to do at all with a disease that mutates easily.
Sorry too Ceres, the article was in "Garden News" issue May 16th on page 4 if you can find a backdated copy. It was entitled "New disease blights poppies" with a sub title "Oriental poppy population at risk". I thought there was an online version of Garden News Magazine, but I can't find one, but I hope this reference helps.
