How to Grow California Poppies

California poppy (Eschscholzia Californica) is an annual in Canadian climates. Poppies do not like their roots disturbed, so it is best to sow the seeds directly. The best time for sowing the seeds is in early spring, when mild frost is still possible. You can also sow California poppy seeds in the fall just before the ground freezes.

Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 7 inches apart. Only lightly fertilize as they do not tolerate much. Germination may take anywhere between 2 to 3 weeks.
