Are Tazmanian poppies hard to grow?
    #3966668 - 03/24/05 11:10 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

According to www.poppies.org, Tazmanian poppies are the best of the best. Papaver Somniferum v. Nigrum on the other hand is one of the easier strains to grow. As a first time grower, what would you recommend?

Of course I rather go with the ?Tazzies,? but would I be biting off more than I can chew? Are Nigrums that much easier to grow?


In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

-Carl Sagan

Tazmanians are really easy too. Everybody can do it. Just keep in mind that they don't like transplanting.

i'm new to the whole poppy thing as well but if you do some reading you will find out that poppies are considered weeds, and actualy grow better than most weeds around, and some places even ban them from being grown because they do so well on their own and spread like crazy, diff climate zones make alot of difference but they grow pretty well all in all.

are they all equally easy to grow or are some easier than others?


The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

Go with giganteums. Seriously. You want to know why?

This is why.

Most strains you come across will generally be about the same amount of difficulty, not much at all.
