Oriental Poppy - what do to after flowering
Poppy's have all finished after best display of flowers I've had for years, and now have the large seed heads, but the leaves are starting to yellow and gone a bit tired looking and starting to flop making border look untidy. Because they took up a lot of space in a small border, the whole border is being affected by the look. Can I cut back the yellowing stems to ground level to make space for other planting for the rest of the summer? I know I'll lose the great look seed heads, but don't really mind that. I think I saw on GW that Monty ripped his out of the ground, but not sure I want to do that. I want them to come back next year.
