Prepare a bed, broadcast your seeds. I don't do this, but i probably should, mix your seeds in with some sand to get some better spacing so you don't have to thin your patch later.

You've, pretty much in most areas, have missed your planting time, your best bet is to look toward a fall planting, overwintering as rosettes, or early spring planting.

Further reading - search some other threads by starter on the topic of poppies.

just toss em on moist soil. and thin em out once they start to crowd each other. they germinate very easily... but toss the seeds where you want your poppies to grow... don't use starter pots or trays like other plants. the roots are extremely fragile and they don't transplant well. also, i find they do better if grown in the shade until they have a few sets of leaves. they are very delicate seedlings and sun will easily dry out your grow... but once they have a few leaves they become very hearty plants.

the best of luck to you.
peace :cool:

Does it matter what time of year it is if you plant them indoors?

honestly, i think it's a waste of time to grow poppies indoors. outdoor plants have way more of a yield along with a higher alkaloid content that indoor plants can't even come close to. seriously, go with the sun, it won't let you down.

but if you do decide that an indoor grow would be better then... no, i don't think it matters what time of year you plant.

I've had luck germinating in the middle of winter and keeping them in the "cabbage" stage. Then I move them outside in the spring and they produce very large flowers.
