If you where to spring sow some Hen and Chicks or Purple Peony Poppies late, how big should the plants be at this point. The only poppies Ive grown before this year where the P.Orientale. Attached is a pic of the babies, either Hen and Chicks or Purple Peony, not sure which ones are actually growing yet. Its a bad pic, but they are anywhere from 1.5"-2.5"
at the most.
HI,I THINK YOU ARE OFF TO A GOOD START!!I STARTED MINE IN DOORS THEN TRANSPLANTED THEM OUTSIDE.THEY ALL DIED.I EVEN HAD SOME LEFT OVER SEEDS SO I PUT THEM IN THE GROUND NOTHING EVER CAME UP.I LIVE IN WIXOM MI.SO I AM A LITTLE JEALOUS.GOOD JOB!!!
I think the soil mix is just right for poppies. Its really poor soil and very sandy, from what I hear poppies dont like a very good soil. I also have 2 volunteer white marigolds from last year that came up in the same bed, one has a tiny little bud on it. In case your wondering about the seed for the poppies, the Hen and Chicks are Burpee purchased at Sprawlmart, and the Purple Peony was purchased at Lowes.
