do I cut back foliage of papaver poppy once it has flowered



No, you can cut back the flowering stem but leave the foliage to feed the plant.

If it's a Papaver orientale variety it will start dying back quite soon anyway unless you are lucky enough to have the new repeat flowering cultivar 'Brooklyn'.
