Poppies in the garden are wonderful and easy plants to have in the garden. They self seed and come up everywhere. They are not a nuisance as they are easily to pull up from unwanted areas. They come in many colours and the seeds can be used to give bread a coating and a delicate taste. The seed pods can be dried for flower arangements. The only negative is that the flower only last for a few days. The glaucous leaves and seed pods gives aditional interest for the rest of the summer until they die down.
