It's a lime. with nail galls. Not the cause of the drip. I wouldn't have chosen a lime for the reasons you've found and for its eventual size

Will poppies grow back if I mulch the soil?

depends what the poppies are. If they're Meconopsis cambrica they're perennial and will survive whatever you do.

all those chemicals. 

There are some lovely plants that can be grown with no trouble at all. Why persist with something that needs constant 'treament' aka poisons?
