planting 2 acres of poppies

emellJanuary 30, 2008

I would like suggestions about sowing 2 acres of rough land with poppy seeds. I see them all of the time in my state along interstate roads. I understand that they are hardy, love poor soil and full sun, and reseed themselves. Thank you for any help you can give!

Spot sow. Walk the land and when you see a barren patch loosen the soil and throw some seed down and if they take in 5 years they will double or triple for your viewing pleasure.
