Growing Artist Glory Poppy
Poppies are best when they are grown from seed that is planted in autumn or winter, even in cold winter areas. They can also be sown in early spring, about a month before your last frost date.
Poppies are difficult to transplant as the plants develop a taproot, so starting them indoors is not recommended.
Choose a sunny spot with good drainage. Weed the area and rake to a fine tilth.
Pour some poppy seeds into your hand and sprinkle them very thinly across the ground.
Allow 7-30 days to germinate, depending on the variety, soil condition and growing temperatures. Keep the soil moist during germination.
Once the seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to around 30cm apart.
