Welsh Poppy Leaves Turn Brown At Tips Then Die

Question From: Mason, Ohio, United States
Q: I have quite few welsh poppies growing in a shady area of north facing garden (UK) They're in mix of soil and small stones so quite well drained. The problem is they're developing brown leaf tips then the leaf is dying and losing the plant foliage is resulting in loss of plants, what could be causing this, thanks.

A: Lack of sun and water. Poppies are full sun and moist soil lovers. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
