I always direct sow my poppy seeds in the late fall.
I sow the seeds in a tilled bed after Thanksgiving.
The seeds need a cold chilling period to germinate.
I always have good results using this method.
I also direct sow a few seeds in big containers on my patio and thin the poppy seedlings after they sprout,so I can have a good size poppy plants without
I would sow a few seeds from the flanders, in a container and direct sow
the rest of your poppy seeds in the late fall.
Don't cover the seeds,they need light to germinate.
I use a salt shaker and sparingly sprinkle on top the soil.
