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


Hello Kitty,
    I purchased quite a few peony roots last fall that come in a "good deal"
from a known wholesale/ retailer. Potted them up to 2 and 3 gallon pots set
them out in a frame to ride with the local temps. Just pulled a remay cover
over them from December thru March. They are not about a foot in height in
the pots. I checked the root systems just for the heck of it and the pots
are almost filled with feeder roots that formed over the winter.
    Also ... I just receive a wholesale catalog from the same company.....
they only ship peony roots in September. I do know that I can order roots
from the Dutch just about any time as they are held in coolers with humidity
control.
    Would I transplant peony in my own garden from a container... may have
to try it to see how the rules ride in reality...
    to be continued...
