      I’ve planted these in the past with success in Southern California, but it’s been getting hot lately (not sure if global warming of the Gods are angry at us.)

      Any tips and suggestions to grow in Riverside, California?

      I think if you understand the normal cycle of poppies then you can have good success with them in warm climates–remember that they are from places like Afghanistan that are beastly hot! Basically the somniferums are going to act like winter annuals, that is if you plant them in the fall (as nature would, fallen from the pod as it were) then they will germinate as temps cool in the fall (and if there is no rain, you would have to supply watering to spur this germination) and they overwinter as a rosette and flower (’round about the same time the california poppies come in bloom) in the spring. That would be the schedule to hit. People who try to plant poppies according to standard spring-planted vegetable garden-type practices are usually disappointed. r

      Do puppies have shallow or deep root systems.? I would like to know if deep but less often waterings or frequent shallower ones work best.

      Hi Steve, Thanks for staying in touch. California poppies have a fleshy taproot but the somniferums aren’t so well-rooted as that, they have more of a spreading root system with lots of hairs and really not ultimately that good of an anchor for such a big plant. I am thinking back about how I work with these and it seems I give a deep watering twice a week or so, unless the rain does it for me. Richo

      Yes, definitely, spring planting is preferred in cold winter areas. most of these like a well-rested, rich soil except the california poppy does best in gravel. richo
