Re: peony depth

Thanks Gene and Rich. I think I got it about right. I allowed somewhat for settling and it's just an inch below to allow for a thin layer of mulch the first winter. Peony eyes can be up to 2 inches below, so this should be good. I'm really looking forward to these. Gene, how long before 4 yr old P. veitchii and P. molly-witch (too late for me to be looking up how to spell it.) bloom for the first time?

Hello Kitty,
Treat the species and the hybrids the same on planting depth when it comes to peony. Since soil settles, I usually plant a bit height... slight mound then it gradually becomes just below soil line.

I just planted 2 species peonies and NOW it occurs to me to ask if the planting depth of the eyes for species peonies is the same as for garden cultivars. I placed the eyes about an inch below the surface.
