Talkback: Oriental poppies

Does anyone know of a knowledgeable nursery in the Eastbourne area?
I've eventually got the time to garden and love it.


  • I am a Mrs Perry and have been searching for poppy Mrs Perry for my garden but cannot find any. Does anyone know a stockist please?

    Mrs Perry is a stunner! image

    I started with one single poppy and now have two very established clumps. So easy to grow but be warned they have deep taproots and even if you think you've dug them up, they often grow back! Good way to make more though.image

    I remember years ago, when we had summers, spending a very zen hour or so in the morning watching an oriental poppy flower open, I caught it just as the green case split and the crumpled petals unfurled like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon.
  • Does anyone know any stockists on the Internet for 'karine'?
