Right before winter, when the first frost comes, be sure and lay some mulch down around the seedlings or infant plants to keep them safe and warm.
Be sure your Celandine Poppy Plants are not too close to each other; in the spring, when they start to come up, dig them up with soil and roots and separate them by at least 6 inches. Otherwise, one plant will leech the nutrients from another.
But as long as you locate your poppies in a shady area, provide compost and keep them drained but moist, your poppies will soon grow like wildfire, and you will have an explosion of color to your garden.
