Awesome! Sounds like your poppies are well established in your garden and are happy. You can cut off the spent flowers or you can leave them on the plant if you want to see the seed pods in your garden. I tend to prune mine off to encourage more flowers. You can try it both ways if you have 2 or more plants to see which looks best in your garden. Enjoy!
