I grow a number of different oriental poppies - what did you want to know? Seeds can be started indoors - need bottom heat of 65-68F, should germinate in about 2 weeks.

Indoor sowing is easy, they sprout about 1-4 weeks for me with fresh seeds. Give them lots of root space and they're easier to transplant outdoors later. They also tend to be leggy and fragile when young so protect from damp-off and fungus gnats. I've found gnat larvae gnawing at young seedlings.
