Cornwall is not the best place for blue poppy.
Although not grown from seed I bought plugs years back and allowed some to flower and some not to (to build up strong flowering perennial plants). They did flower first year but nothing from any of them after that. Acidic, moist, sheltered, cool and not strong sun......all I tried to provide. I think the North is best for these poppies.
