I'm not often in this thread my climate doesn't allow growing Meconopsis, however i admire the photos posted here.

John your shading frame is excellent, is it a whole "house" or just a 1/2 span?

It's a full lath house at my friend's, mainly to protect from wind gusts as the garden is close to the crest of a hill.  And deer!

Here are 2 pix.  Last week and the last photo taken after a huge Rhododendron rex was moved out in 2015 I believe.

These structures are highly recommended in Nova Scotia, one can even gain an extra hardiness zone within.

Meconopsis lancifolia -sadly nothing to cross-pollinate with.

Hi John,
Yes the back row looks like 'Mrs Jebb' they are small and look straight at you, 90 degree angle.

Thanks so much Julia.  Hope you're keeping well.
