After Paying an Arm & a Leg for just ONE Gram of their Seeds (back in 2006), I figured, they must be good. So I was careful to Keep them from Cross-Pollinating.
Their Seeds produce such AMAZING results, that, the following Season, I Ordered EVERY Variety they carried:
…and have been Breeding them every year since.
As far as I know, I’m one of the ONLY Suppliers that carry ALL of the above. Any other Vendor who claims to have them, ask them to provide Original Photos of the Plants they grew, and make sure they aren’t taken from the Internet.
We have included several Photos and even VIDEOS to backup the Validity of our Seeds
The powers of the poppy have been known since at least 3400 B.C., when the Sumerians called it ‘Hul Gil’, the ‘flower of joy.’ It has also been variously called the Sacred Anchor Of Life, Milk Of Paradise, the Hand Of God, and Destroyer Of Grief.
hiroko rowena –
Gotta love these unique Pods that these produce. I ordered some last Season and they had about an 80% Percent germination Rate (but that may have been my fault because I left them outside, unprotected from birds which I hand’t even thought about until I saw their “How to Grow Poppies” Tutorial – 1st on Youtube, then in their Blog), and I got many beautiful Blooms, but like with anything in Nature, not ALL Pods have Chicks. Some have Chicks, some don’t (which is normal). But the ones that didn’t have Chicks, were clearly still of the “Hens & Chicks” Strain based on their Flowers and the thickness of their Pod Membranes.
I’m not a rookie at growing Poppies. I’m actually quite experienced.
I’ve purchased from many suppliers in the past, and last Season, purchased several Varieties from Organical Botanicals and their Seeds are by far the best in overall quality- even better than some of the Major Seed Sellers out there.
The shipping isn’t what I would call “Speedy”, otherwise, I would have given 5 Stars. But, I know now to just place my Order early this year (and the shipping is FREE anyways so I can’t really complain)
Overall, GREAT Store!!
WONDERFUL GENETICS!! i COULDN’T BELIEVE HOW EXOTIC AND BEAUTIFUL THESE WERE!! GREAT GERMINATION RATE TOO!
