saving poppy seeds

Huntington, WV(Zone 6a)

I have a few orientalis poppies that I hope to duplicate. Is there a secret to saving seeds? And when should I start them, as in do they need a period of cold? thanks for any info

I harvest my seeds when the pods open and save them in a zip lock baggie as long as theya re good and dry... they do need a period of cold to germinate in my experience but I am not sure how long. I scatter my seeds toward the end of winter and wait to see them start growing.
