When I put poppy seed here in winter I didn't think of how much shade this gets in spring and summer. These made it, but Peshawar poppies did not. #notetoselfla 6.20.18

No pressure, right? Gulp 😳 Wish me luck. Has anyone direct sown these this time of year? I had great luck direct sowing the other poppies in fall last year. Should I treat this the same way?

Perhaps you could plant some now, and some in early spring, as it says on package. They look like winners, great blue color!! @columbiariver

Some now and early spring as well for my two cents

Thank you for your input you guys. I think you're right. They weren't really generous with the seeds. 👌😜😘 @saco @cyndi
