I know its a strange one but i have around 20 pap soms Giganthiums planted 3 months ago into pots which are now quite large. They have been outside, fairly sheltered over the mildest winter ever. They have had a small amount of frost but i dont think they'll get much more. Some are single in small to mid size pots, a few are in large pots but i have 2/3 in those. Today i pulled off any dead/brown leaves and i will put some nitrogen into any that are pale tomorrow.
My questions are
Will the singles in small pots produce pods in the small pots??
Will 3 be OK in the larger pots??
Should i transplant all into a raised bed??
Should i put the best/biggest into a large cold frame??
I sowed around 1000 seeds at the same time as these, into the ground, but i have no sign of any growth???
When should i sow the next 20000 seeds into the ground???
Any other thoughts for garantied large healthy Pods((Fnarr Fnarr))~?????
I am aware these are real/proper opium poppies and i am aware i am not breaking the law by growing them. We want as many pods as quick as possible for an art exhibition in the summer.....
All good help welcome...
