Put seed in the salad compartment of a fridge for four weeks in order to break the seeds dormancy. Strange as it may seem, the seeds need to first be 'sown' onto damp kitchen (paper) towel. Remove the seed from the paper towel and gently press it into the surface of wet seed compost, but unlike most other seeds - do not cover with an additional layer of compost or grit. Meconopsis seed require light to initiate germination, but do not place the tray in direct sun light as bright conditions are more than enough. Place the tray into a cool room with temperatures of no more than 18 degrees Celsius. Maintaining a level of constant dampness is very important and at no point should your growing medium dry out.
