Has anyone seen a poppy like this before.....

Posted: 15/08/2013 at 12:23

It's an opium poppy. Very distinctive because of its grey "cabbagy" leaf. They selfseed and once you have them they will keep coming.

We have them in pink, red, mauve, single semi-double and double. If they grow where they are not wanted they are very easy to pull out

Thank you Addict and PaulaH. It's certainly a Persicaria and whichever it is I think I will stop it in it.s tracks. Even though the flower is attractive I don't think it's right for a 40ft x 40ft garden with lots of other plants to grow.

This has appeared in our garden and as it is doing so well I think it must be a wildflower. I can't find in any of our books. Can anyone identify it please?

Re-using polystyrene for veg seedlings

Posted: 29/03/2012 at 18:02

If they are rathyr shallow your veg seedling roots might not go very deep to give them a good start. I have used waste polystyrene cups but they are much deeper. Drainage is probably the better use.
