Thank you, Caroline. Spring is headed your way! It's been glorious here and now moving into hot weather. Yesterday was up to 91. I have daylilies with buds formed, too! Isn't this the best time of year?

Oh, please do. I'm already planning to locate more poppy seeds to put in the freezer and then plant out later this summer for germination. Don't know if it will work or not, but I'm going to try. If not, then more WSing this winter for sure!

Did anyone have a direct sow germination problem with seeds from OneStop Poppy shop?
I thought it was my fault, but talks with gardeners has revealed they had no poppies from OSPS either.

I just went out and hunted spots to resow for next year. Gardens are pretty crowded and hard to get thru. I brushed past some larkspur and heard rattles so I know they are sown. Last year was the first year for larkspur. I am hoping for a mass this year, also for more of the poppies that did germinate.These grow on a hill that is hard to garden on.

Good luck, Jo Ann. I'll try to get a photo of my poppy seedlings coming up from this year's blooms and post it soon.

No. Sorry for the confusion. The poppies that bloomed this year were poppies I wintersowed winter 2009. The seedlings I have coming up now are from the seeds they set after they bloomed, so it may be another year before I see blooms from them, but I'm just happy to have some poppies living in my garden!

Many of my wintersown poppies germinated, but I think I put them in the garden too soon. I'll keep trying. I have a couple small plants. I'll see what they do next year.

Here is a question about self sowen annual poppies.
If the somnifariums set seed in August ,and I assume they are cast shortly after_
Why arent they germinated now, along with the seeds I sowed in October 18th.that are showing 2 leaves?
I'm just curious.

There likely is a germination inhibitor in the seed coat which will wear off over time.
Poppy seed is more viable after about 6 months storage.

Caroline - "Poppy seed is more viable after about 6 months storage." Really??? That's very interesting! I just sprinkled seeds in my beds, containers, wherever I could because we are getting the freezing temps now and probably will continue to have cold freezes off and on for the rest of the Winter. I am trying some new poppies that Karla so graciously shared with me. I also put a mental note not to buy from the One Stop Poppy Shop. I've seen it on eBay and was so tempted, but didn't. Glad I didn't now after reading that the seeds may not germinate.

I would love to get my hands on some of the California poppies in different colors. I understand that they tolerate heat and bloom off and on for most of the growing season? Is that true?
Another Day in Paradise!
