I grew some poppies this year that are bred for their seeds, for use in breads and baking.
The clever thing about them is that they don't open up and spill their seed. They stay closed up so you can pick them when you want.
Not too many grew but I did have a line of them down by a patch of beetroot. Once I harvested them I let them dry in the greenhouse for a while before collecting their seeds by breaking open the seed heads, a strangely satisfying job!
I didn't get huge numbers but each seed head contained lots (just not many seed heads!). I won't use these for baking but instead sow most of them next year and see how many I get, I'm planning on dedicating a bed (10ft by 4ft) to them next year as they're really pretty as well.
Does anyone else grow poppies for baking with?
