Poppy seeds

Hi,
I've sown some poppy seeds to flower next year, they have already germinated and started to grow,  is this ok?
Thanks

  • I'm in Dorset. I've planted them directly outside with the intention to flower next year but they are already growing now,  does that mean they won't produce next year.

    There are many different species of poppies [ and many plants called poppies, which are not really poppies at all, eg. Meconopsis, called Himalayan poppies ], so it would help to know what type of poppies you have sown.

    Ok., so not poppies at all. Mine self sow, but do not germinate till Spring. They may be fine, but they might be killed off by the frost.

    Sorry that sounds a bit snotty, it is not meant to be.
