I have some empty beds that I want to sow with poppy seeds I just bought. I know they need a period of cold and I've always sown them in the fall or winter before. Will sowing them now get me any poppies this year?
Yes its too late. Mine are waiting for fall.YOU can scatter them in fall for next year.
I would place about 1/2 the seeds in the freezer for 2-3 weeks, then plant them. If they don't grow, you still have seeds for planting in the fall. It's worth a try.
Thanks for the advice, I will try freezing some and planting now.
