I need to move a tree peony ( long story). It's been in the ground here only two seasons and is about 2' x 2'. Any advice? Or should I just bite the bullet and toss it?
Moving a tree peony.
Dig very deep and take as much of the root ball as you possibly can and then get it back in the ground as soon as possible and water it well and don't let it go bone dry. But don't drown it. You might as well dig it and see what it does instead of just tossing it..
That's what I'll do. Nothing to lose I guess. Next time I hope to be smarter and plan better.
OH heck, what fun would it be to have everything always planned out perfectly! It's more of an adventure this way. :) Besides, sometimes the best stuff happens by accident! :)
I certainly have my share of "accidents". This was a really nice tree peony imported from Canada. The color is like nothing I've ever seen. So was the price. :>(
I see the peony garden has many, many of the same tree peonies as Klehm's does, only Klehm's prices are much easier on the wallet.
Good luck with the peony move. It's a very lovely selection.
Snapple, that is a really pretty color. Hope you're able to save it!
That is a really nice tree peony! I hope everything works out ok for you with its move. :)
Try as I might I can't get that link to open. I went out to peonies.org and couldn't find a reference either. I'm sure there is very good information there that I need know. MaVieRosie could you cut and paste or give the direct link? I be very grateful.
