I planted a series of poppies last Fall and due to some unusually warm weather, they sent up leaves before the first snow.
The green leaves have wintered over and are now visible again that the snow here in Boston is finally gone (whew). My question is, should I cut back the leaves to encourage the plants to send up new growth? Or just leave them be?
Thanks in advance for any insight.
