Re: Help! - Lilies gotta go


Ssometimes Ricky (H.Ed) gets something in his mind that he wants things done
now.  He had previously told me that he wants to dig these peonies in Spring
2006 and of course I objected, but he said they had been moved in spring
before.  I believe most of the peonies were a rescue job from a house whose
property was sold.  The man had  dozens of named varieties, plants that were
50 yrs old, from which he sold cut flower bouquets. They were dug in spring
and apparently recovered from the ordeal.  But, you dig at the wrong time
only when necessary, like Bonnie did to get her mom's peonies, because it
was now or never. I sort of thought that if he was planning spring 06, maybe
we could do it this fall instead.  But all of a sudden, it's now.  Well,
maybe.  He likes moving stuff around.
