Bargain Japanese tree peonies
...bargains! I went to a fairly local branch of Wyvale in Hare Hatch and found that they had Japanese tree peony Suffruticosas for £9.99 (smaller plants) or £14.99 for the larger ones. They were well-budded and although they looked recently potted up, tree peonies are less fussy than herbaceous ones so I don't anticipate that this will be too much trouble. The plants' stems were quite thick so they seem to be well-established, despite the recent re-potting.
I just think that we could do a LOT worse for that price so it is worth checking out. I have already planted mine.
