Well done, let it ripen and dry on the plant and save the seeds for next year :-)

(one can always partake in the dry pod if so desired it will still have some punch)

How are they going, tails?

Mine have pretty well finished for the year, the whites are ready to come out, and the giganteums will follow shortly as well. In my experience, whites give a slightly better experience compared to giganteums, bit more potent (esp. when the pods are ripe and have dried, seeds loose ready for collection...)

I been thinking about poppies a lot lately.

Any chance someone knows of a poppy strain that is cold weather hearty with high alkaloid production? Talking Ohio climate.

I became curious, so I did some searching for you. I live in so cal, so cold is not an issue for me. It seems they actually do very well in snow covered, cold climates. You can always start them in starter pots and transplant when snow melts, bur a lot of gardeners on this site claimed they just scattered seeds on the surface and left to go dormant until spring thaw, and that they thrived. One gardener actually claimed to scatter seeds over where they wanted them over snow (not too deep I imagine) and that as it melted they took hold on the ground.

 

I have not found them to be particular or demanding, other than once sprouted, they don't like transplanting that disturbs roots. I usually just cut off any I don't want rather than try to pull them.

gigantheums

 

Sow now or late winter on prepared soil. They like a nitrogen feeding early. Keep well watered but not drowning. Find a way to support them if in a windy area. They also do very well when grown with other stuff that supports it in wind and does stuff to give it a little shade and possibly cooling the roots. it looks messier but I've always gotten better results when this situation develops.

 

I'm north of you. There's plenty of growing season for these here but you must start them early. Waiting until things warm up sometimes disappoints.

Nice flowers, in southern Mexico they grow them in the winter, they seem to get higher alkaloid content in the cooler temps.

Just about any poppy would be good, cold doesn't faze them. I'd suggest Tasmanian or Persian whites in addition to giganteums.

+1 on they like the cold. Especially to stimulate germination. Many growers usually plant seeds out the season b4 and come spring they will be noticed popping up through the melting snow.

If pods aren't harvested and seed is left to broadcast.. come the following year after winter when the snow begins to melt they Will begin sprouting in early spring. We have freak snow storms where I'm from and it's not uncommon for them to be covered in snow on early spring.

I've also had poppies survive brief dips into the single digit - ┬░Celsius, during the early spring.

I think central Europe still holds the record for potency, from memory 20% alks in mountain ranges in Slovakia, to give some indication of their ideal conditions. They seem to love hills and coldish winters with moderate summers but plenty of sun.

I meant that scientist studying morphine production have concluded that in colder temps more morphine is produced, this is why Mexican drug cartels grow poppies in the winter in Mexico, Science.

Yes thats pretty well true. (although day length and light intensity would be a big factor as well.)
