Spring Cleaning.. lost alot of my poppies to spring cleaning..

meadowgarden(zone 6 NY Longisland)June 4, 2008

I just noticed that when I spring cleaned. I spring cleaned a lot of my poppies. Has anyone else pulled out flowers thinking it was a weed? Any suggestions on how to master the art on knowing whats a weed to whats a plant?

Thanks Meadow

They say...if it does not pull out easily, it is a weed.
If it pulls easily, it is a keeper...guess you gotta get the feel of it.

How sad you cleaned a lot of your poppies...one of my very favorites. Hopefully you will have some left to enjoy.

If I am in doubt about a plant, I leave it, and if it is a weed, I soon discover that it looks like tons of others on the property.
