I type malaprops and Freudian slips too, and if someone is talking near me I'll type what they're saying. I'm easily distracted.
Most annuals won't come again unless you dig over the soil. Corn poppies in particular would not grow without the ground being cleared first. In their native range that's done by summer drought. Annuals are hard work but beautiful and I have only got a couple of poppies this year where I've dug over for one reason or another. I did tried over seeding with a top dressing after cutting the grass as short as possible, though it appeared to be working the grass came through too quickly and swamped out the seedlings. Ground is cleared naturally by poaching by animals, horse, dear, wild bore
