There are the perennial ones called oriental poppies, you can cut those back, leaves as well and more leaves will grow.

and the opium poppies, the annuals with light green leaves

and the ones that are deived from field poppies in varoious colours, also annual.

the last two can be left to seed or pulled up

What sort of poppies are they?

If you research where each plant comes from you will get some clues. No tender plant from a hot country will need cold stratification for its seeds. It's about replicating what happens naturally.

I believe you Fiona, they're everywhere. I don't take much notice of them unless they get very extreme. They are part of nature and I like a natural garden, the birds pick them off for me and if it gets really unsightly I brush off or cut off

Problem with black bamboo

I don't think bamboo grows from cuttings, you need a bit of root with a shoot or potential shoot. Also interested to know the origin of the bamboo seed.

Can't see anything in the photo but sounds like aphids. Brush or hose them off with water, you don't need chemicals
