4. Thin the Seedlings
Once the seedlings appear, thin them to 4 inches (10 cm) apart. Overcrowded plants will become spindly without the room to branch out.
5. Water the Poppies
Water a little only when the soil looks dry. Poppies like almost drought conditions, so if it has rained in the week, then they are likely not to need water.
6. Choose a Sunny Spot
Grow poppies in a place that gets full sun. Use poor, lightly moistened soil. Seeds will germinate in 2 to 4 weeks and flowers will open from 12 weeks onward.
