When is the best time to plant poppy seeds? I was told to plant in the fall. I tried but nothing came up! I planted in the spring and the plants were so small with no flowers.

Your going to want to plant seeds in the spring. Poppies are tough once they get going - my mother had a patch beside the driveway that bloomed year after year with absolutely no care - but the sowing of the seeds has to be done in a rather exact way.
