Help! Want to grow bread poppies..
I want to grow bread poppies. I use about a half pound to a pound of seed a year in various baked goods.
Can only opium poppies be grown for bread seed, or are there other kinds that can be used? I often see the terms Oriental, Corn, California, and I don't know if they are edible kinds or not.
How big of a patch is needed to get that much seed? I don't want to grow a giant patch that could get me in trouble just to make bagels and cakes a couple times a year.
How thick will they grow in? How invasive are they? I want to grow them as sort of a living fence that would be mowed back on one side, but allowed to wander into a wild grassy area on the other side.
Thanks to anyone that can help :)
