My next door neighbour can only see blue flowers. I made him a list and the year I successfully raised a load of blue poppy plants, I gave him half a dozen. They were planted in a group in shaded soil enriched with lots of horse manure. When they flowered , he bought me a bottle of champagne.
His blue poppies did better than mine. Must have been the horse poo.
