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.

    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.
