Poppy invasion - help!

Posted: 29/05/2014 at 20:16

Sounds like Meconopsis cambrica, welsh poppy.

Don't let them set any more seed if you don't want them. 
you could paint the ones you cant dig out with a gel weedkiller. They are resistant to being dug out even when not under a boulder

That's very good to hear Philippa. They live here and I saw a couple earlier in the season but nothing for weeks

I'm a little envious now

Can anyone identify this plant

It's a biennial native to somewhere south of us. The mediterranean area I think.

In a hard winter it doesn't always make it through to spring 

Can anyone identify this plant

It's an odd one, crops up all over the place where people haven't planted/sown it

If the move isn't imminent I'd get he seeds off first

I think at this time of year I'd get the plant with as much attached soil as i could and move it in one lump

Can anyone identify this plant

21-45 days is a long time if you're used to annuals. It's quick for a perennial grower like me

Any ideas?
