Help. I've been offered an established tree peony and have to pick it up on Friday. Any advice very welcome please.
Get as much root as possible and don't plant it any deeper than it is now.
If it's enormous I'd remove a few branches so it doesn't rock around through the winter and you may need to stake it to keep it firm.
I can't think of anything else, someone else might.
I hope it moves OK
Thanks Nut Cutlet,
I've had an offer of help to dig it up from a very experienced local gardeners so we'll see how it goes. Just fortifying myself with a cup of tea before I go out to dig a 'Welcome' hole.
No idea how big it is but I'll take my loppers in case it's a whopper.
