Once you have planted up your cuttings and new shoots have emerged, wait a little longer (new roots are made just after new shoots), pot individually and plant out when they've formed a good root system.
1Lift a clump of the oriental poppy that you want to take cuttings from or just scrape away the soil around the roots.
2Trim off a good section of the roots with a knife.
3Cut the root into short lengths (around 2.5cm) and push these vertically into a seed tray, of compost, thick end up.
4Cover the seed tray with a thin layer of grit to improve drainage and water well.
5Wait until new shoots have emerged and formed new roots, before potting up singly.
