A friend of mine gave me some of her mauve poppy seeds and I'm wondering when to plant them: spring or fall? Does anyone know?
If they don't get planted until spring, what is the best way to store them for the winter? They are in a camera film canister right now.
Thanks for any help!

Tammie - last season there was a thread dedicated to winter sowing and a lot of our GG friends reported great success.
Here is a link to that thread and it has a lot of information in it..

As long as they are dry, the film canister is a great place to store them if you do decide to wait. Just keep them a cool dry place and they will be fine. If you have plenty, you can always use a few to experiment and save a few incase it doesn't work.
