Are these poppies?
I planted some Thompson & Morgan seeds in April this year from a packet labelled "Poppy Flanders". I think technically they are corn poppies.
Anyway, not being a gardener there all these plants sprouting up which don't look especially poppy-like to me. No sign of flowrs yet but I don't know whether to leave them and see what happens of pull them up.
They are about 10-15 cm high now and the stems have a milky white sap when broken.
The stems branch in a pretty regular pattern and have small oval leaves with straight edges. I was expecting them to have a sort of serrated edge.
Can anybody confirm from this info and the photo if they are weed or plant?
