I think it will be a little early but don't know for certain. You know, I think if you contact the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and try and contact the section that deals with the cemetary you are after, then they will probably be able to help. Or else contact the Town Hall of the place nearest to the cemetary. As to whether you will be able to pick them, I have seen them growing all over the verges and fields so unless there is a specific protection order on them, then I should imagine you would be able to gather a bouquet.
