The majority of my poppies  appear to flower first year from a spring sowing,  I have never tried  t he.   blue poppy , but it looks worth the challenge! 

over winter succulent

I bring mine into a cold green house anytime now before the frosts.I don't water them throughout winter I find they usually have sufficient water in he surrounding compost  as they are all in a gritty free draining mixture I stand them on capillary matting  .

I drape a treble layer of fleece loosely over the entire plant or plants if they are put close  together tucking it round to keep them snug. 

Might not work for everyone but it works for me.

thanking you all for received seed
