Hi folks,

I agree totally that seeing field poppies everywhere in 2014 would be a simple, moving and poignant tribute to the fallen of WW1.

The Royal British Legion have this covered, please see http://realpoppy.co.uk/ for details.

There are a number of caveats to bear in mind when mass planting poppies,
Avoid scattering near agricultural areas (especially Wheat, Barley oil seed rape) where the influx of poppies into the fields may require additional herbicides to be used.
When producing flowers, poppies a mildly toxic to cattle.
Avoid scattering in areas of Special Scientific Interest
For poppies in late summer 2014, scatter in Spring 2014
After scattering, rake over the soil to ensure germination.
Excellent caveats, well made. :)

As to the RBL's pricing, sorry but they're not for me. That's a ridiculous amount of money for a couple of pinches of very common seed, even if the "surplus" is going for charitable use.

Many people prefer buying through the Amazon site rather than eBay. The price difference purely seems to be the delivery service offered, as the eBay price is by slow economy delivery, rather than first class RM via Amazon.
As the seeds are best planted early next year, I suspect that a 2nd class stamp (rather than a 1st class one) will still get the seeds delivered in time. 8)

p.s. it's a 3 to 5 day delivery service through the Amazon link and so my guess would be that service is also using a 2nd class stamp, even though it also mentions 4th or 5th for expected delivery.
