- Plant seeds of the Iceland poppy plant in fall.
- Seed directly into the flower bed that will be the permanent location of the Iceland poppy flower, as growing Iceland poppies do not transplant well.
- If you wish to start seeds indoors, use biodegradable cups that can be planted right into the bed.
- There is no need to cover the seeds; the Iceland poppy plant needs light to germinate in spring.
- Mark the area, if necessary, so you don’t mistake the spring foliage for a weed.
- Grow the Iceland poppy flower in a full sun area.
- Soil for the Iceland poppy plant should be light and well drained.
