There are 3 clumps, and flowering has started.
No sign of them.
One plant up.
There were 3 plants.
I divided one as it had split into two distinct clumps.
I dug one clump and split it into 2 smaller clumps.
I expected fibrous roots but the soil under the plant was filled with thick tap roots.
Probably more frequent division is advisable.
The divisions are doing ok.
They are not nearly as advanced as the undisturbed plants but they seem to be taking hold.
One division is flourishing and one is languishing.
One other plant has a flower.
One division is alive and one looks dead.
The other plants have finished flowering.
2 or 3 plants in their location.
It is strange that there are no new plants.
Beginning to flower now.
I had a few flowers from the larger plant in the old spot,
and one flower from the plant in the new spot.
I moved 2 plants from the old spot in late August.
They had no fine roots at that time, or if they did, the roots broke off during transplanting,
but I hope they put out new ones and recover next year.
I had only 2 plants in the old spots, and they were not very large.
They died back, they have not sent up any new growth yet.
Growth in the remaining part of its old bed
and in the bed to which I moved some plants last fall.
Budding in the old spot.
New leaves are coming through the mulch.
In full flower.
They died right down, but now have a large rosette of leaves.
I moved 3 plants because the planned raised bed will take up most of their current space.
The last flower is in full bloom now. They did fine.
I have mulched their bed. I hope this helps with weed control (dandelions and Dames Rocket).
There are many rosettes of young leaves.
The melting snow revealed some plants of moderate size.
They do not seem as large as other years.
Perhaps they have had to compete too much with self-sowed Dames Rockets and dandelions.
Many blossoms on large plants.
There are a few leaves in the garden, in rather poor condition.
They look fine now. The leaves form attractive sprays.
Over half have finished flowering.
The snow has melted and revealed some small green leaves,
which I expect will continue to grow.
Dried up long ago.
Doing fine. 6 good-sized clumps.
The weather has been cloudy and rainy and now 2 days of sun and heat
caused half the buds to burst open yesterday, and last only the day.
More buds opened today.
Up but a little sparse.
I deadheaded them.
I cleared away most of the foliage, which was now dead.
There are a few bunches of light green foliage.
|Oriental Poppy, June 13, 2004|
2 flowers open.
They put on a good show, and have now largely died back.
They had died back so I mowed them down.
The snow is almost gone from their bed and most plants have a few green leaves.
I deadheaded the last blossom.
I cleared away the last of the old vegetation today.
There is a little new growth.
There are several clusters of new leaves now.
Almost all of the snow is gone, and there is young growth in the oriental poppy bed.
The first flower is opening today.
They look rather poor now.
Up and doing well.
New growth is visible today.
As a result of moving the plants last autumn, many small plants are growing in many new places, and have to be weeded.
The first 3 blooms opened today.
They have largely died back. There is one flower!
There are many medium-sized green leaves.
There are green leaves on the ground,
now that the snow has gone.
Doing very well.
No blossoms left.
Started to look tired.
Most plants still have green parts.
I moved 5 plants to a new spot in the perennial bed,
which Kyle dug today and to which he added compost.
One plant was already there.
Kyle dug out the previous plants.
I gave some of the roots to General Byng School.
It was a good show this year.
Green leaves are visible in the new spots.
The plants are still alive,
but there are few leaves.
Many full buds should open soon.
"60%" of the buds are open.
No growth occurred under the snow.
Doing well in the garden, many new leaves.
First flowers. The plants are flourishing.
Cleared them out, although parts were still green.
I beheaded the final dead flowers today.
Cleared the dead foliage, except for 1 plant.
They are growing again;
I guess it's due to all the rain; one is in flower.
