Ok I think we have 5 winners. I'll message you all in the coming days and get these out asap. It's a shame you can't sow them, because this would be the perfect time of year!

Great work Glaukus - very generous :)

 

Are you not legally allowed to sow them? (I've been trying to find out legality in VIC, and could only see that they were determined a noxious weed).

 

Thank you, 

 

Apologies, with a slightly different search I found: "It is illegal to take, use, sell or grow poppies without a licence from the Victorian Government. Illegal possession of poppy plant parts or substances derived from poppies is a criminal offence and attracts heavy penalties." I've always seen poppies growing around, and thought it was fine....Guess I should remove the one's from my front yard lol.

I know a lot of people grow them ornamentally, but yes, it is illegal. A judge might throw out a case of your nana growing a few heirloom cottage flowers, but I'd hate to see anyone get themselves in trouble.

Number 4 doesn't even look like a poppy flower to my inexpert eye.

It's a shame these things aren't legal. I think keeping up appearances has a lot of benefits and if you listen to your nana she will probably agree.

"Papaver somniferum var. paeoniflorum" flowers look like a peony flower :)

They're some of my favorites because the blooms last more than a day. The bees have a hard time penetrating the thick dense petals though.

They're "rumoured" to be strong too.
