Poppies - where do they do best?

Posted: 23/06/2014 at 14:09

Plants love gaps in paving and gravel and other inhospitable looking sites.

In my experience poppies don't like pots much.

I've got lobelia in a paving gap, I don't know where that came from, it's years since I grew any

I don't know why but I know what you mean. I had to google this one to see which species it is. It's V. phoeniceum. I have a purple one of this species and it's never made much of an impact. It looks as though it should but it doesn't.

So glad you enjoyed it. Exhausting but fun

Does it need damp soil? I've never got one because I always see it beside water and I haven't got any reliably damp soil. We saw some at Barnsdale. Lovely foliage plant after the flowers.
