Lest we forget: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
This is a time to give thanks to those who have made every sacrifice and those who are currently serving. It's a time for reflection and remembrance. It's a time to look at the world around us and realize how fortunate we are to live in North America. We salute our former as well as our current service members for all they do and the integrity they uphold.
We've chosen this symbolic day to release our
Grade Eh Farms' Peace Poppies
We've been working intensely with poppies for over half a decade now. The original seeds I started with were black seeded papavar that were brought in from the Middle East in the 1960s and merely served as decorative art. The story is actually quite long and one day in passing maybe I can share it with you. I was generously gifted a few heads and was able to revive them. I set out crossing with other poppies we raise to get the genetics we have now. I've finally accomplished my goal of a large white flowering white seeded poppy. Don't be fooled by this gentle giant, this white poppy is soft on the eyes and silky to the touch. It makes a beautiful addition to any garden. Under a full moon with a slight dew to the air you can see these poppies mimic the illumination of that bright orb in the sky. On a hot summer day the heads will ooze a milky sap as if they are perspiring. Flower heads will reseed and grow the following year with very little maintenance. The dried heads make a beautiful addition to floral arrangements. If you are a prepper we strongly recommend this addition to your stockpile.
By far, this is one of my favourite flowers and they are produced on the West Coast of Canada by our small holding from our locally produced heritage and rare plant and seed collections. If you intend to keep this line of our flowers we ask that you state that they originated from our farm as Grade Eh Peace Poppies. The seeds will breed true and have not been genetically modified. Some variance in poppy head shapes and size may occur due to non selection of that trait and your soil conditions. Our seed germination is around 90% under controlled conditions. You can expect germination to be much lower when scatter planting. Can be challenging to transplant. I suggest container gardens with support already installed.
