Plant Poppies Now!!

If you want to have beautiful poppies like this in the spring be sure to get your poppy seeds in the ground soon. Poppy seeds are so so small, it is best just to scatter them out in a sunny location and then just ever so lightly cover them with bedding mix or compost. Aren't they beautiful!

Yes, larkspur needs planting now for early bloom and then you can put some out in February for summer bloom. I haven't ever planted bluebonnets. Yes, you should do your fall winterizing fertilizer.
