RE: Peony question

Thanks Marge!  I just bought one for 1/2 price from Brent and Becky's!  I
haven't had a blooming peony since I lived at home as a youth!  I did have a
peony when I lived in Maine and it grew wonderfully.  I rescued it from the
back yard when it was in the way of a stair being built onto the deck by my

Sure - where you are, it shouldn't be a problem if you get enough
cold weather to vernalize them in the first place.

Where I am, October is always considered prime peony planting time
and it probably isn't much colder now where you are than it is here
then...if that makes any sense:-)

Theoretically, you can plant most anything any time the ground is not
frozen.  Actuality varies with where in the world you are gardening
and the specific plant you have in mind and what shape its in.
