I have a couple of dozen 3" peat pots of an assortment of varieties from various vendors. I planted these without having cold treated the seeds. My conditions have been 55-60 deg F night, 70-75 deg F day. Some seeds that I sowed on the 19th have germinated and plants are a 1/4 to 1 inch high now, nine days later. Some of the seeds that I sowed on the 21st are just barely showing signs of germination.

 

Some of the varieties I have: I have a number of varieties of of peony poppies - double purple, double red, double black, scarlet and Flemish Antique. Also, I have Lauren's Grape from several vendors, Hungarian Blue and various whites. I have no idea which ones will be my favorites. How about other people here, which are your favorites?

At night I let the humidity drop to 50% in the greenhouse where I have the seedlings, so by evaporative cooling the temperature of the pots should drop almost 10 deg F below ambient.

 

I plan to grow the plants in pots in the greenhouse, one plant per pot. What size pots do people recommend?

Sounds like good germinating temperatures. Good luck.

I Just sprinkled my two pods out in the snow . I think they are just regular old poppy’s but they’re nice to have around .
