Good afternoon I hope someone can help me. I have trawled "tinternet" for days without any luck trying to solve my problem.
My oriental poppy 'Princess Victoria Louise' has flowered for me every year with no problem, however, this year it has grown as normal but just before the flower heads were ready for opening they have turned brown, gone very brittle and then just disintegrated. The plant itself looks very healthy and lush as did the stems on which the flower heads were attached. I am so disappointed and don't know what I should do now other than cut them right back and start again. Can anyone advise.
