Poppy plants - in the fall?
    #3180969 - 09/26/04 12:33 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Why is it important to get the seeds in the ground in fall (even if you get snow), let the snow fall (meaning they won't grow), and then they will grow in the spring. My question is, if they aren't even going to grow until the spring, why can't you plant them in the spring? - or maybe a little bit earlier then that. I've read that getting them in the ground in the fall makes the opium more potent, or the plant produces more opium. Does anyone have any information about this?

So it really doesn't matter if I put them in the ground before winter or right after the snow melts?

You can do either one. By planting now you get a little head start and they will come up at the right time. I've even heard of them starting in the fall, coming up, getting covered with snow and then in the spring when they thaw out they start growing again. I plan to grow some this fall but we don't get much snow here.

As long as it's cold for a couple of weeks after you sow the seeds then they will sprout fine. If it's warm then they don't germinate in my friend's experience. It has no effect on potency

If you plant em now, they'll sprout, and over winter as rosettes, then int he spring they'll grow. You can throw them in the early early spring too and they'll be just fine too. Doesn't really matter.

Say someone theoretically has a small growing container that has a bunch of sprouts with their second set of leaves already. Do you think that they would be able to at least get enough plant material to make papaver salad from if they lived roughly in the Mid Atlantic, and could bring the planter in at night so they don't die in the frost? My friend knows he probably won't get flowers from this batch, but if he can get enough plant material for a potent salad he's all for it.

possibly (depending on genetics and your definition of a "bunch"). though it would be better to wait until the leaves are more "cabbage-like"...there are alkaloids present in young seedlings though not much...it would be better to just wait until it delops more in size...the bigger the plant, the more alkaloids it contains.

peace

throw em in now, trust me. you have a better chance of flowering by july that way. poppies like the cold snap of winter. sowing them now will only increase your chance of a good harvest.

its hard to tell a poppy from a weed at first. they are very scraggly looking plants until they start to send up flowers. trust me and sow NOW.

My friend has already sowed them and has seedlings with their second set of leaves on, however, they have been sown in a small container. He was just wondering if they would get to the cabbage stage in time before temperatures become to low. He can bring them in at night to prevent frost damage, but wants to know if they'll reach the vegitative stage in the container he sowed them in. It's about 8 inches wide and three inches deep.

Where I live, it is not uncommon the get below zero (it isn't common either, but it happens). Also, there can be periods of time where the ground will be exposed, no snow to give insulation. I've heard that under those conditions the poppy seeds may not sprout.
