Angelblossom, I started them indoors, in plastic egg cartons (10 per holder). And transplanted them once they were big enough and had deep roots. Only thing I can really say about them is they do not like to get dry once they start growing
. I lost quite a few because I did not water them well, and they like light. Let me know if you would like some seeds
I think my Black peony poppy is about ready to open. This one had a very bad germination rate so if I can get seeds
from it, I'll have more of them to try. I also tried with the Blue Himalayan poppy, but did not germinate what so ever, so I asked the seller for a replacement. I did as was indicated but was unable to germinate them. And I was looking forward to them.
