Planting Poppy “Bulbs”

Zone 60660 | Anonymous added on June 19, 2017 | Answered

A friend just gave me a bag full of poppy "bulbs" that she cut from her outdoor garden in Michigan. I love poppy plants but have no idea what I'm supposed to do with these bulbs (see photo). Am I supposed to plant the entire bulb? Do I somehow have to extract seeds from these bulbs (if so, how) and when can I plant them?

The Poppy seeds are inside the seed pod and you can gently tap out the seeds unto a paper plate when the pods are dry.
