Thanks you all for replies, maybe put it down to weather, as my other poppies are fine.  Happy gardening

Thanks, will try vine weevil spray, perhaps blaming field mouse for too many things lol, next will be hostas and my lilies, slug, can't put down slug pellets, as we have frogs, and for my lilies I use provide bug spray on them, after squashing the beetle, hey this is why we love our gardens. It's a lovely problem to have.

Can anybody help, something is eating the new shots on mine, (ones planted in the garden, we do have field mouse, as they have had a few crocus bulds, ones that are in pots, the outer leaves have gone dry, do I cut them off to new growth light? Any hints and tips would be great.

We knew we had field mice, but donot realise they ate crocus bulds, until the other day, couple of weeks ago we plant at least 1000 bulds, and looking forward to a fantastic show next February 2013, on close inspection the other day (26th December) I noticed holes in the ground and new broken flower shoots, I googled the problem, and found it is a field mouse fav food, I read a blog saying they don't like blood, fish and bone, so we have tried this, I hope it works, or we will have no display, and will not plant anymore. Will let you know if it works, fingers crossed.
