Double Poppies From Seed?

butterflylion(7bGA)May 15, 2008

I saw some beautiful double poppies in a seed catalog. Has anyone ever grown any of these? Would these do best planted in fall in metro Atlanta?

Scratch soil and plant directly in the garden in November. It works well for poppies, batchelor buttons, larkspur, nigella, blue shrimp - cool weather annuals.

I sowed some perennial flowers by hand on a decent land and with decent plans.

All over the bare earth rose many plants. Some of the green were called weeds and some were call friends.

All over the decisive nature was brought about: a hard trowel and even harder sprouts.

Things we pulled up, things that didn't fit. And in the end, it was 100% legit.

According to the academy of plant science, the land on that which I tread is devoid of all defiance.

Thus the question is the answer, and dare you ponder yonder,
all across the open globes,
to watch the one you choose.

Ps. This was about poppies?
I can only guess what joy and death that they may bring.

On the new day I chose to see and happen in my own existence
I drove myself to purity and with knowledge became my own deliverance.
Each plant and each seed, I pluck carefully to become a part and past of me,
Each life changed and helped out, no matter how close the call had seemed.
