My Poppies
    #1699966 - 07/09/03 04:43 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

i went to the zoo today and the owner had a flower garden with about a billion poppies. all papaver somniferum. i thought, hmmm, is this DROOL on my chin?

so we left the zoo as im sure i couldnt sneek out with any, driving home i noticed that almost evry household had a poppy patch, all OPIUM POPPIES OOOOOOOOO!

so we decide to go to all the nurseries in the area and investigate.
the first was crap. the second had poppies but only in the personal garden, they were sold out of young plants, then she mentioned the existing plants would be plowed under tomorrow anyway and lent me a shovel....... :eek: :wtf:
she sold me a pot of soil for $2 and i gathered up evry large plant i could and a few handfulls of small ones. im afraid they will die of course, :sad: :nonono: :shake: but ill try,  :wink: the soil they were in was dust-dry so the dirt crumbeled away without damaging the roots.  the entire rootstocks were obtained, then transplanted into healthy wet soil.  im going to transplant them to my backyard  they are wilting a bit, but not ALOT. so heres hoping, the biggest plants have about 10 or so buds each, and apparently this is a very large-podded strain that re-seeds and comes back yearly, ill just help it along if i get any seeds this year.  theres about 5 large and 15 small plants in the pot.

i sure was happy, next year i will do it right
