Any tips for growing poppies.I started them in peat pellets.
They hate to be transplanted and peat retains too much moisture to keep them happy for very long.
I would harden them off and get them in the ground asap.
They are well worth it because they are beautiful!
'Poppies' covers a lot of territory for us to be able to answer you :) Did you sow annual or perennial type?
I have grown annual poppies that reseed every year for me. I start them in styrofoam cups and although poppies hate to be transplanted, I planted the seedlings early enough that they grew fine for me. They would have probably done better direct sown, but at least you know that there may be some hope for your peat pot poppies! ;) California poppies are really good re-seeders for me.
I think the California poppies are the pretty pink ones? I have those and they do reseed for me like crazy too. They are so pretty like paper machete. I also have grown the Oriental Poppies from seed. I direct sowed those too. The first yr. they were just leaves and the second they bloomed. They should be blooming for me in a few weeks... Very robust plant.
