What is a Mecanopsis and why is everyone talking about them?  Are they the must have plant now that my hellebores have nearly finished?

I could be naughty and say yes you've gotta have at least 6. I'm talking about the blue Himalayan Meconopsis that Pdoc can grow in his garden that I've killed twice and can't even germinate the seeds.

I have gerbera overwintering in GH and doesn't look like mine. Like Bob, I'm still thinking veg, I know it's obviously not rocket but that has hairy stems when older. Bet it's edible, post me a piece Nut and I"ll have OH taste it
