Thread: hello and a question about popies?

    Default hello and a question about popies?

    Hello, new here!

    I have a question about transplanting poppies. I just bought 6 8inch pots of poppies from wal-mart and I am a bit uneasy about transplanting them. The Lady at the store was no help.

    We have had a VERY mild winter, almost non-exisitant, but every now and then we have a a night around freezing.

    First question is does anyone know if poppies transplant well? Also should I wait until it gets a bit warmer? Most days are between 60 and 75, but a few cooler around 50 and like I said occasionally a night near freezing.

    The tag says hardy to -40,. Now I know at a cold enough temp I will lose the blooms and foliage, but will they come back again this year or not untill next?

    LOL guess I should have chose something I know more about but they are so lovely and I've never had much luck with them from seed.

    Thanks for any help and looking forward to being a part of this community!

    Well I held my breath and left them outside last night and it got down to 38% F. They were fine this morning. So I think in a week or so (when my back will allow!) I'll go ahead and put them in the ground. I guess I can alwys cover them if we do get some freezes!

    I would still appreciate any advice though!

    Sorry I can't help ya here and people posting on this forum are getting sparse. Now if these were a veg I would have jumped right in. I guess with processing they could be a cash crop though....

    Make sure, if you have not yet planted them, that they are in an area that gets a least 6 hours of sunlight I believe they can thrive year round. I would like to know if you have planted them yet and how they are doing if you don't mind my asking?
