Hello, REALLY, really , really want my poppies to grow this time!!! Getting very frustrated with not being able to grow them. Am in Saginaw, MI zone 5. Have never tried "winter sowing"--maybe this is what I need to do! When should I put them out this year in order for them to grow next year??? Now??? or not yet??? And just sprinkle on top of ground and put "very light" covering of soil on top and wait and see or what??? PLEASE HELP!! I have several different seeds to try that I have traded for or recvd. from other members on here(THANK YOU ALL) and I REALLY want them to grow this time! And does it make a difference when they are planted if they are perennial poppies or annual poppies?? I know what some of them are but not all of them. Any responses will be GREATLY appreciated!!
