Poppies didn't come up, what did I do wrong?
Last fall, a co-worker gave me some poppy pods from his garden. He didn't know what kind, just said they were red. I stored them in the garage all winter in an open bowl, kinda forgot about them. The mice kicked them around all winter but I still had lots of seeds left. I read up on how to plant them, mixed the seeds with some sand and sprinkled in a tilled and sunny location and watered daily. That was 3 weeks ago and nothing is coming up. It's not a huge loss but I'm wondering what I did wrong? I'd still like to plant some poppies in this location.
