      I bought the poppy seeds mostly because of the packaging. Will be using them to hand out at an American Legion event. So far they are everything I expected. Can't wait to hand them out.

              Comments about American Meadows Red Poppy Seed Packet:

              I started these seeds in 3" pots in the greenhouse, and they germinated within a week. Because the seeds are so tiny, I sprinkled quite a few in each pot, so it was necessary to thin them out as they grew larger. The foliage looked great, and they were easy to care for. However, I think I should have started them in the spring because our greenhouse still gets cold on extremely cold winter days, and the environment wasn't optimum for them. I have 9 other seeds packets that I will try again soon.

                Comments about American Meadows Red Poppy Seed Packet:

                Before I tried Red Poppy seeds, the wildflowers established on our property were shades of yellow, orange, pastels. By mixing in the Red Poppy seeds I now add a welcome pizazz to the landscape.

                Last Spring I gave an American Meadows' Red Poppy mini-packet to each of the members of my Garden Club. One of the members announced at our March 2010 meeting she had enjoyed the splash of red so much she bought more red poppy seeds to plant this year!

                Q & A

                Plant With These:

                USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

                Find Your Planting Zone:
