    These are stunners I first saw them in a trial garden of a seed company in GB
    The flowers are as big as your hand, ruffled like peonies or old centerfolia roses
    and
    They come in the most amazingly intense jewel colours.

    Australia is one of the few countries with red-tape restrictions on importing seed. (They are related to the Opium Poppy grown in Tasmania)
    I have grown them on and off for years but often had people flogging my seed.
    Now I have none.
    Can anyone help me find an Australian source?
    I got some on e bay but at $4 a packet of 10 seeds, none of which came up. I am reluctant to try again.

    These are some of the sorts of poppy available OS :(

    double red and double pink I could find easily enough quite common

    those other colours are quite speccy though I don't think I have seen them before although there is a place I will look....

    I confess I have never really concerned myself much with the colour qualities of this joyous plant

    Would you like to swap?
    I found some on ebay but very expensive.

    How expensive?

    I will acumulate some seed and gain your address and delivery instructions when ready

    I have double red now...

    but the other seeds will need to come off current plantings which I will need to..... aquire

    when did you want them?
