I can plant poppy bare roots and they take fine, als oNative Poppiues just seem to grow but I cannot grow Californian or Iceland ones. What am I doing wrong? They don't even germinate. Can I germinate them on a kitche towel instead?
Californian and Iceland poppies are annuals, so you are a bit late for this year. So longas the seeds are fresh and you don't overwater them they should grow readily in the spring.
I think both do better direct sown,
Thank you x
