Rake soil to provide a firm, even surface. Sow seeds thinly in pre-watered soil, lightly covering them with a little more soil. Sowings made in semi-circular lines create a natural ‘drift’ effect. Keep moist until seedlings appear and as required in dry spells.
When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to allow their development and to prevent overcrowding.
Late summer and autumn-sown seedlings may benefit from a cloche or fleece protection when hard frosts threaten. Such plants generally bloom earlier the following summer then spring-sown plants. Always sow California poppies direct in their flowering positions, as their long tap roots mean they don’t transplant well.
