Seed Depth: barely cover

Plant outdoors in early spring when soil is cool, or in fall prior to first frost for early spring blossoms. Germinates best in cool weather and well-drained soil. Water consistently, but do not fertilize. Can be started indoors six to eight weeks prior to last spring frost, but note that poppies do not transplant well. Use biodegradable pots to avoid disturbing the roots.

Blooms profusely in cooler growing conditions and can rebound in the fall after summer heat. Plants tolerate poor soil and light drought. Remove faded flowers to encourage more blossoms.
