The Tuesday Cut: Week 5

by Cliff Sharples (chief cultivator)

Poppies are popping everywhere.

Not Your Wicked Witch Variety Poppies

You can't help but be in a good mood with poppies blooming, let alone fall asleep. Especially big, floppy oriental varieties and the new star in my garden - Papaver hybridum 'Black Peony' from Annies Annuals. I like using the poppy seed bulb in arrangements with the blooms to add a little twist...
