How long does it take for a pod to open into a flower? It has been pretty cold here but my plants seem to be ok. I have about 50 pods but I have to leave for 2 weeks. I am sick to think I might miss this beautiful show.

They look ready to open any day!
Poppies like to open in the cool of spring, after your bulb flowers have faded...so that's generally around NOW!
I would pull up a chair and wait with you if I could.
