    They are all over my garden too. Definitely poppies, usually yellow or orange. I leave them until I decide whether or not they are going to fit in with my planting schemes, and 'oik' them out if they don't. Try not to let them go to seed - they are like the proverbial rabbits!

    Super,  Thank you very much for your help. Yes @yorkshirerose they are all over my garden too. I'll leave them for now. 😁

    Agree with Hostafan, pull the weeds out.

    Almost certainly Meconopsis cambrica aka Welsh poppy.  If so, they will be as yorkshirerose describes.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
