These seedlings are grown from the seed packets that I bought at an orchid nursery.
I've been keeping a close eye on this batch and with high expectations.
I've been dreaming of the lovely poppy flowers popping out in your gardens in Spring...
I wanted this plant. According to the label, "Shirley Poppy" seeds will germinate 2-3 weeks time, reach a height of about 45-50cm and will be flowering in 50-60 days time. Flower colour is red. The temperature should be 25C with full sun. There are no details of the expiry date.
The 25C is a bit tricky because the daily temperatures in my climate average is about 30C now.
