    #2986719 - 08/10/04 05:27 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I've done some searching tho I"ll admit nothing hardcore but I have looked and I have not found the answer to my question so I'm gonna ask it here.....whens the best time in the fall to plant poppies in southern ontario? also does it depend on the strain for when it gets planted....I've been told turkish commercial would be a good strain for my area what do you guys think?

In your area I'd plant in early spring soon as it thaws. Another strategy is to sow seed in the fall before it snows. The seed doesn't germ until it thaws and seems to have a head start. It's a little late to get a crop in this year I would think.

I would think it would be o.k. to go ahead and throw some down.

ok now I got another question....should I just get some poppie seeds from the grocery store since I'm just getting my feet wet and thats the easiest cheapest way? what strains are usually in those? also I'm not planning on doing anything special to the ground I live in an agricultural area so the soil here is damn good for growing anything.....all I was gonna do was lightly water down some peat(pre ph adjusted with a lil added verm and perlite) mix the seeds into it and sprinkle em where I wanted to grow.....I think I have the climate in the fall to grow them provided they are as fast growing as I am led to believe....and if not they should survive the winter and start in the spring am I correct?....thx for the help btw

ohhh and btw I was told where onions grow poppies grow and they grow tons of onions around here so I think my climate should be good
