A link to growing poppies in DWC - deep water culture
http://growopium.tum...roponic-poppies
For you hydro growers or just for fun.

I just got a few more seed packs 1 an afghan and 2 packs of Danish Flag, waiting on my pack of Neon
somniferum.

A lot to grow , enough seeds to share and do some clandestine gardens.

The first of my poppies are getting to the lettuce leaf stage, where they look like poppy plants..
I got like 7 or 8 varieties from 6 different vendors.

I feel like I got enough to sample and try . I'll get some pics up soon to show the little lettuce
leaved plants

I started them early indoors and an going to do outdoor grows in containers and in ground.

I prefer the term breadseed poppy as they are legal while opium poppy are illegal, I know we are
all growing for breadseeds.

Are you going to try to keep your strains pure, or are you going to leave everything 'open'?

I used to try to keep mine pure, but now I DGAS.

I'll let other people do it, and I'll just buy the seeds.

And of course I grow them for seeds...

OK, I've found that the 'open' seeds lead to some rare colours and patterns, and petal arrangements (semi-double etc)

Not much difference in inner beauty.

But I've noticed that you get a steady supply of seeds. They're worse than rabbits.

Hey all!

Lots of good info here. I've read somewhere maybe one of shadow wings threads or a poppy related book that cross breeding seeds tends to give you random amounts of alkaloids vs keeping pure and proven strains.

On another note I've had horrible luck germinating seeds in and outdoors. What method do any of you find works best?

@Nsnail....I basically just throw seed out into my garden when there's a light dusting of snow....that's it....they come up, I thin them out, and voila....poppies....

I'm hooked into this one for the ride.

 

Got some varieties from eBay a couple years ago, could get 'em sprouted but not much after that.

I have some I'll start inside tomorrow (only variety I recall OTOH is gigantums although I have others as well) and pick up some seasoning from the store and try those for giggles.

 

Good to know about the edible seeds as I'm growing them for the woman's Macaw (seems birds have the best taste in seeds. ;) )

 

Best (and most fulfilling) vibes to all the grows this year!

I think the season has a big influence on Inner Beauty, bigger than any mixing of genes IMO.

And I just throw the seeds on some recently worked soil and wait. Not much snow here either, I wait for the nights to become chilly (April/May here) and sprinkle them around.

Namaste

 

My little friends will never reach the size they would like at my homeland, but I still had some beautiful, yet small, flowers last year.
So here goes nothing! Sowed 3rd of march, started to sprout 8 days later. Tempreatures here were 6 to 14°C at day and 3 to -2°C at night. It rained heavily twice and I covered the pot with baking paper for those two days.

 

Greetings to you Skunk, I was not around much last summer and missed your work. I remeber how enthusiastic you joined about 2 years ago (and how penetrating with questions as well :D) and this year I def. don't want to miss what you've learned and been up to !

 

I've send you and your plants the same love I try to share with mine, peace brother.

Let's just say it's one of the countries within the fertile crescent.

All the little green specs are poppy starts. I've been thinning them out for a month now....

Looks like fun :-)

Have you thought of a poly tunnel? For 'cold sensitive' plants.

You seem to be a rather dedicated gardener.
