HI i have black poppy seeds when do i sow in pots

If these are the very dark purple annual ones with grey green leaves I'd wait til it gets warmer and sow them straight into the garden. They don't like being transplanted.

I know that conventional wisdom always says so them direct, but a few years ago having had problems doing this I started to sow them in modules. This seems to minikisw root disturbance but allow me to get fairly large plants before I plant them out.                   I would still wait until it warms up a bit before sowing

soory I have no idea what minikiw means. I should have typed minimise. I have not even had a drink yet.
