Hello,

I had direct sowed some Shirley poppies awhile back and while I had excellent germination, seedlings everywhere! I soon had none because the white crowned sparrows who come down here for the winter ate all of them! Well except for two that somehow got blown into a 4" pot that I have a brugmansia growing. They definitely don't have enough room to grow in there for much longer. Everything I have read says poppies don't like their roots disturbed, so no transplanting unless you sow them in peat pots. However does anyone have any experience carefully moving them with success?

They don't like their roots disturbed so transplant carefully. California Poppies can't be transplanted at all.
