Q: Which states are these California Poppy Seed Bombs native to? You can grow them in other states, they just won't be considered native and may not grow as well. The optimum planting time depends upon your climate and average rainfall. In areas with colder winters, spring or early summer seeding is best. Spring plantings should be done as soon as the planting area can be worked, but after the last frost. Early summer plantings should only be done if rainfall patterns are anticipated or supplemental irrigation is available. “Dormant” seeding can be done in late fall when temperatures are low enough that the seeds will not germinate until weather warms the following spring. In mild climates, plant fall through spring, to take advantage of winter rainfall. A fall planting allows the plants to develop and provide an earlier display of flowers in the spring. If planted in spring, make certain rainfall is expected; otherwise, supplemental irrigation will need to be supplied. Q: What are the growing instructions for California Poppies? A: These easy going, drought-tolerant plants are a favorite for use in container gardens, mixed beds, rock gardens and water-wise landscapes. Sunlight: Full sun Maturity: 55-75 days from seed to flower Height: 4 to 12 inches Spacing: 6 to 12 inches apart in all directions. Site Preparation: California Poppies like a rich, fast draining soil, with ample water and plenty of sunshine. Don't worry though, they are hardy and will tolerate poor soil conditions and some drought once established. Work a shovelful or two of well-aged manure or organic compost into the soil prior to planting to improve soil conditions and help promote abundant blooms. Then plant seed balls half-way into the soil with spacing as indicated above. Water daily until they are 4-6" tall, unless rains will provide ample water (such as in the spring or fall).
