    Interesting snippet.
    The Marigolds that were included in the wildflower pack versus the individual pack I ordered.
    The wild ones are pale yellow and loved by the bees. The separate pack has golden ones ignored by the bees. Presumably hybrids.

    I'm puzzled over this one! I don't think it is a poppy or poppy-like flower. It is smooth. Anyone know?

    I've been told on FB that it's an opium poppy.

    @MJB the green one with the droopy poppy head.

    That sheep netting isn't very tight is it?
    I wouldn't worry about it. A lot of processing is needed to produce the drug.
    I wouldn't believe anything on facefook unless it was verified from a respectable source of real information.

    They seed like fun.

    Don't the Americans panic, though?

    Doesn't one of the Universities grow them for medical research? I'm a bit fuzzy on this, but I can remember a few million years back that cannabis hemp was being grown as were opium poppies. Could be wrong though - might have just driven by some and sniffed:D

    Opium poppies are grown commercially. The pharmaceutical industry needs to get its ingredients from somewhere.

    Haven't you heard? The Afghanistanis have totally embraced solar power and putting it to use for their poppy harvest. An unexpected spin-off of new technology.

    Hemp is grown commercially, too, but very low/no THC.
    Even so, I believe the growers have to jump through hoops to be allowed to do so.
    Shame, it's a very useful plant with a long history of uses for ropes, clothing, other stuff.
