    i cut some heads off of my orange poppies last year and have what looks like a tablespoon of tiny seeds. sometimes i split the plants when they have a good year but i would like to try starting some from seed. i heard they are difficult from seed. any pointers?

    Poppies don't transplant well. You can sprinkle the seeds on the ground and leave them.
