I'm new to the Garden Web and I've really been enjoying it so far. I've found lots of things that have revived my interest in gardening, winter sowing (now I can't wait for winter and seed catalogs!), hypertufa troughs, and other people that love/hate gardening just like me.
Once upon a time my husband and I rented a place and the lady that owned it grew Shirley poppies and they reseeded themselves every year. We've moved a few times since then and I've tried growing them from seed, but so far no luck. I've scattered the seed in the fall thinking something would come up in the spring, I've tried growing them in flats, and I've tried direct sowing in the spring. Still nothing. What am I doing wrong? Any tips or tricks? I know they grow around here, a lady down the street from me has them.
