@ Farhan: I guess this is the right time as heat has arrived in Karachi, abhi nahi tou kabhi nahi :mrgreen:

@Rafique: Last year Graham Thomas bloomed till June 2014 after that no blooms yet.. it was planted in Jan 2014, got the Ivy leaf geranium from Islamabad in October last year, its cutting propagated from Muree.. you can find it at Babu nursery...

On Shirley poppies, almost fighting with each other, i have read that the poppies lack nectar, bees are only getting pollen from them
