I am having trouble spotting/thinning m poppy seedlings.
Any idea's what/where they might be?
I'm think the larger seedlings are Purple deadnettle. Maybe they are the grass like threads hiding in there.
larger photo follows:
Pull out by hand each deadnettle and then see what you've got.
They won't win in a fight with native weeds
They're very obvious once they have two true leaves .If you get rid of the ones that are obviously not the eschsholzia, then you might have a fighting chance of identifying the real ones.
Well i pulled the lot up and didn't spot one guess hey got eaten or smothered.
When did you sow them?
That's a long time, they may well have gone under but you may get some later germinators or sow some more
Hi Bluebaron. These are my Californian poppies rescued from collapsing greenhouse. I sowed them very late into pots instead of the ground so these are about 4 weeks. I'm assuming yours should look like these.
