A neighbour kindly gave me a few Remembrance Poppy seeds a few years ago. I threw them in a few places round the garden and got some nice bunches of poppies, which i collected the seeds from to replant for the next season. The first crop were basically identical (or i did not notice much variety in any of them).
Each year they came up i found more and more varieties. Mostly the flowers have 4 petals some have six and some are double fours. Initially all were bright red, some had a black ‘cross’ in the centre of the cup, some did not. Four years ago i collected one petal from the different varieties i had in bloom that day – the pic of them is at the bottom.
