That would be wonderful, Barb, I have never grown Poppies..that sounds like fun. I must say though I do not think I have anything to send you in trade. why
It seems, I am really poor at harvesting seeds in the fall.

I do have some "Golden Creeping Jenny" aka: "Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea'" growing in my rocked area that has to be moved, I could send you some of that. I keep it in a pot & it comes back every year--it is 3 or 4 years old now

let me know--- shewinks

I planted those seeds before it got cold,, and it rained off and on after that,, next thing I knew they were growing, didn't take long it seems.. I just barely covered them with soil. I will be saving some seeds as well.
BTW Lynne,, I've tried them before but they never did anything,, Dodge's seeds must love Tx soil,, cuz grow they did, thumbup

Dodge - that's very sweet of you to offer. Not to offend, but I don't grow red flowers - it's just something I don't care for really. Would you have seeds of another color poppy?

For a few years, I would get seeds from a friend who lives on the beach in NY - we have always missed her blooms, but always seem to be there when the seed pods are right for picking. Am I supposed to be putting the seeds out in the fall so they get the cold winter? Just wondering because Diane said she put hers out before the cold.

I had bought a few packets of blue poppy seeds one year and again, nothing happened. I would love blue ones if you have, Dodge, as Diane mentioned in the other thread.

Also, what kind of exposure do you grow them in? Sun? Partial shade? Shade?

Sorry I have no blues
Planted some an they didn't grow.
I so them in sun or shade.

I don't separate my seeds usually in poppy,
But have pkt of California yellows if you desire.
Usually spring an all year till frost I just plant them

I love that bird bath too but the birds won't come near it. I've even put a water wiggler in it but the birds nor the cats will drink out of it.
