It might be a good idea to invest in a small propagator - they are very inexpensive.
This is how I sow my seeds
I use clean pots or trays ,fill the trays with seed compost and press down lightly with another pot or tray. I then water the pot using a fine rose on my watering can.
Then I sprinkle the seeds on top and cover with vermiculite and spray with water to dampen it. Put the propagator somewhere light and warm and hopefully the seeds will germinate after a few days. Don't water the pots/trays - they shouldn't need it but if the vermiculite looks dry spray lightly with water.
I hope this helps .
Himalayan poppies are not the easiest seeds to germinate
