Re: Lots of questions...need help re lilies & peonies especially...


Bonnie,

Whenever I've moved peonies, I just pull the grass and weeds with their
roots out of the chunk of peonie I've dug.  I've never been able to get the
whole rood ball of an established peonie in one piece; they're just too big
to dig out.  So-o-o I just make little ones out of the big ones, clean them
up as far as foreign plant matter goes, and plant them.  So far ain't had a
failure; they're really tough.  Rich in Z-5 where it was 61 today and will
be 75 tomorrow.
