I am getting ready to leave town early next week & will be gone for almost 2
weeks.  In working my flower beds today I have noticed alot of my poppies
have gone by.  The leaves are turning yellow & the plants look quite sad.  I
can imagine what they will look like in 2 weeks.  The poppies are in my
front flower beds or I wouldn't worry about it.  Can the seed heads be cut
off & maybe put in a paper bag now even though the seeds are not ripe?  I do
not want to sacrifice my seeds just so my flower beds will look good while
I'm gone.
Does anyone have suggestions?
