Re: Help with peonies

Kitty: With the weather being so cool and wet here this summer, I'm not
sure what to expect when. Some of the peonies are just fine...still look
very green and full. Others don't, especially the younger ones. No
obvious signs of disease...they just look like they have had enough of
the growing season and are ready to be done. I have another 3 day
weekend this weekend so I may do them a favor and chop them down.

Melody, you're right about your peonies, it is just that this is
still<br>summer. It's a bit early for them to be going downhill. A few
scorched<br>edges here and there are ok, but I would think yours would
still be pretty<br>much green at the end of
August.<br><br>Kitty<br><br>----- Original Message ----- <br>From:
