My poppies have been beautiful this year. Once the seed pods have formed, can I cut them and dispose of the plant? Is it necessary to leave them on the plant to dry? The plants really look scraggly and are an eyesore when dried up.
Thanks

When your pods turn yellow, you can cut them and let them continue to dry. As long as they're green, the seeds are still not mature.
