Fungus diseases can effect the flowering and opening of the Poppy buds.

It could simply be not warm enough for the flowers to open and that they will open when ready.

Sometimes the flowers are only open for short times and we miss the display, thinking they did not flower.

Avoid overhead watering and wait and see.
