Iceland poppies like cooler growing conditions.
Here, they are sowed in the fall or at least before March.(It is still going below freezing here).
Chilling them might help,but I think that you want to get them
on the ground before your coldest weather comes.
I would sow them in a part shade area if I were down there.
