Poppy Seeds

Is it too late to sow Poppy seeds? I've just been given lot's from a neighbour. Thank You

    Certainly worth trying, I think they will be fine.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    Last week I found a jam jar half-full of them that I'd saved last year so I chucked some around the border. Nothing yet but I reckon as soon as we get some rain to dampen them, they'll be up. The flowers will be later than the ones that self-sowed and are already fair-sized plants.

    We just planted a load at the weekend. Keep them damp for them to germinate and grow.
