Nut, can I move my tree peony? and should I wait until after it has flowered in early May? and should I cut it back a bit to make it easier to move?
I've been trying to get rid of a few in my garden but they still keep coming up. Just shows. There's ideal and what works.
I found two peony at the allotment, which the previous owner had planted. They just say deep red peony on the label. So I have moved them both and planted. Once is in a pot and the other in the ground. Both see to be showing good new growth. Hopefully they will flower this year.
I think I'd move a tree paeony in the dormant season artjak. If it hasn't started shooting yet you do it down
I hope you are all correct
I have just moved 3. 2 of them had been in the ground for years and never flowered, they come out from at least a foot down, like a great big dahlia tuber.. Now planted 2inches deep as advised.
I'm so glad that this thread exists. There's a big clump of peonies in my front garden that was here before we moved in (we rent) and for the last few years. But, late 2012 someone drove straight through our front wall and ran over the paeonies and then the next day got A load of his mates to start rebuilding the wall and trash them even further! they flowered fine (remarkably!) and I've left them, but would really like to move them, just in case something like that ever happened again. I shall now move them Is now fine?
I'd be happy to move them as long as the shoots were still small. Once there are stems long enough to flop I wouldn't
