Seedlings Meconopsis cambrica
« on: February 07, 2016, 12:35:41 PM »
I sowed Meconopsis cambrica garden. Small problem, I do not know what it is like seedlings. I'm afraid of tear thinking of weeds.
Someone pictures please?  :D

I don't think we have any in the forum  - and it is too wet and windy to go out to find some to photograph in the garden..... but , happily,  that useful website, The Seed Site - also has photos of seedlings and you can find a photo of  little  Meconopsis cambrica  there : http://theseedsite.co.uk/sdg11.html

I'am afraid none of them . The first one is an Apiaceae, the second one a racunculus sp (at least, that what they look like).

J'ai bien peur qu'aucune des deux n'en soit. Le premier est une Apiaceae, la seconde, une renoncule (en tout cas, c'est à quoi elles ressemblent)

Is it possible that meconopsis sown in autumn 2015 have yet to sprout and it come later?

I have Meconopsis cambrica that has self seeded all around the garden.  Usually it appears in the late spring.  Takes a siesta during our really hot weather and reappears in the fall.

Sorry no picture of leaf detail.

Foliage is fern like

Beautiful orange color ...
In fact, I bought a plant last year. I transplanted into a flat strip. She made two flowers and two small seed pods before dying. I planted these pods in the fall and a packet of seeds bought a plant fair.  :-\
I sowed in everywhere and in two control pots in the greenhouse. But as I could not see anything germinate in pots, I was looking at the garden. I did not know what to look ... they may be waiting for spring to germinate ...  :)

Send me a pm in summer if you haven't had any success Cfred72 as I always have masses of seed. Like most poppies they don't like root disturbance so are better established from seed, sown direct into the open ground if possible. They like to make a taproot and don't like being in pots. In my cool conditions they grow anywhere but if you are warmer it may be best trying to establish them in shade.

If it ever stops raining I'll have a look in the garden to see if I can take a photo!

Tristan thank you. If ever the seeds do not germinate, I will appeal to you. Regarding the weather conditions and temperatures, we should have more or less the same conditions.

CFred, I think you might be surprised. There is a big east-west divide in the UK. We live in Rhosgadfan https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Rhosgadfan,+Caernarfon,+Gwynedd+LL54/@53.0906342,-4.2487906,14z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x4865a6834b01fdc1:0x1593e9b89ebc38b4 and are significantly wetter, windier and cooler than the eastern part of the UK - which I suspect is much more like Belgium! For example we get 1500+ mm of rain per year, whereas southeast England gets less than 500. See the climate map here: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/climate/#?tab=climateMaps.

Not many barbecues in summer.  :( Good for Meconopsis though.
