Where are our Poppies??

At the start of this academic year in autumn a Great Wyrley High School student did a very important job-he sowed some wild poppy seeds in the quad.  We thought it would be a nice idea to have some wild poppies growing on the school site as a commemoration in light of this year's centenary.

But....they have not yet appeared.  I am not much of a gardener and do not know a lot about flowers-any ideas of when they usually start to appear? Is it still too cold? Should they have sprouted already?

As soon as they do appear (if they do!) I will post pictures on here of what should be our own centenary Poppy 'field'.
