Poppies

bria0128September 14, 2006

I was wondering if it's possible, or a good idea, to plant poppies in large containers (I was thinking a long window box sort of shape) for Spring bloom.

Iceland poppies to be specific. Unless you know of something better. I love them, but will they grow well? I was thinking of planting them when the weather gets a tad cooler in a few weeks.

Now is the perfect time to plant the poppy seeds.
They need the cooler weather to sprout.
Good luck!

Ice land poppies get quite tall. At least 2 feet. I don't think you would like them in a window box.
