Re: Lots of questions...need help re lilies & peoniesespecially...

Marge: Getting the stakes in has always been one of my problems, so I
finally solved it by just resolving to do it last year and then left
them at the end of the year...they froze into the ground with no
problem, overwintered without difficulty, and now are already in place,
ready and waiting...yard looked kinda funny with all these hoops in it,
but at least I don't have to worry about it this year. And as cheap as
Menards sells these peony hoops...I can afford to replace them as needed
and I am okay with that! Wow! How's that for being lazy? :-)
