Meconopsis balangensis
« on: December 31, 2016, 04:42:11 PM »
For the second year, I have excellent germination of this species from seed obtained from Bjarne Olsen last year. Last year I lost the lot and would like to do better this year. Has anyone succeeded with this species ?  If so, advice please.

I have pricked out 28 seedlings this morning (mostly in fours) and hope to be able to bring them to the next meeting on March 4th so hopefully someone will give them a good home.

So far three small 1-year-old plants have reappeared in the shaded trough which normally has a wire mesh over it to deter blackbirds etc.  Early days, but looks promising.
