A friend of mine gave me a brunch of poppies seed I have no idea where to plant when to plant Them I live in Illinois
should I just put them on top of soil or should I scratch the soil should I cover them with dirt it would be nice if you guys had a sticky with that kind of information I hope that I haven't asked to many question but you know us beginers always asking so many easy question
Dimmer, don't know about Illinois, but in most places all you need to do is scatter them on the ground. Fall planting works well in the Northwest. Some species are better adapted to a particular zone that others, and they all like to grow. Good luck.
Scot I don't think he can but I am pretty sure that they are perennial Scot is the one that gave me the seeds I plant some in the east side of the house and I also want to try some in the hosue and see what will happen thanks for all the help I will keep update when I plant some in the house
Ok, if you think they are perennial then most likely they are Oriental Poppy. Go check out the wintersowing forum. Wintersowing is the only way I've ever gotten Oriental Poppy seeds to germinate. I know there are folks that plant direct and have great luck, but I'm not one of them. When I wintersow poppy seeds it's the one thing I'm sure will germinate for me. :)
