I don't hold much hope verdun. Germanation was great but lost loads early on. Sown thinly too! Since then ive done nothing but worry about the survivor' will be a miracle. I'd be happpy if it was monocarpic I could collect sow and then play your game next year!

Yeah nut heard scotland is the best place to grow. Just have a damp shaded part of the garden which would be great for them. Would be a dream to grow them! plus lincoln is a little like the tibetan mountains!

Thank you very much. I have read about buying the plant and sowing fresh seed. Just thought I'd give it a go. Like to grow from seed. Even if it takes a while!! Want to grow my plants....... I have read the real john cobb page! May have to read it again and pray! Thanks again

Meconopsis betonicifolia seedlings are not really growing. Should they be inside an unheated greenhouse or in the house or outside? Is growth slow? Never grown before!

This is what happens when.....
