Oriental poppies, i have the ones with the smooth pale green leaves.About 12 inches high now and some are getting a black rot about 2 inches up stem which eats through and kills plant. Cant see that slugs have been in action, could i have over watered them? They get a spray of water once every few days. Any ideas?



Sounds like too much watering to me? Whats the drainage like as they are susceptible to root rot/fungal diseases iof the drainage is poor.
