Re: peony qstn

I don't grow peony's, so??  Are they like some other plants, when you don't
get an eye, they will grow but never bloom again?
Sorry to hear about the tree....I am sure the maple will survive.  Now the
hosta, did you look all the way around the plant?  Might get a shovel or
something in an area and at least salvage a start?  What are you going to do
with the area?  Thinking you are going to have to dig out the roots if you
plan on planting anything.  Might get a clump or two out while you are doing
Ya know, I do have a bunch of hostas that I brought here when it was total
sun.  They survived till the shade got going.  They fried the first year, but
seem to adapt by the second year.  I still have one in total sun next to the
pond.  I think water and moisture level in the soil also has something to do
with it....but I have been wrong before!

Ok, I just divided a couple of fernleaf peonies.  Not too difficult but I'm
glad I didn't wait another year...

Remember the game "Mother, Mother, come untangle me?"

My question is...
Peony division instructions always say to make sure each division has an eye
or two or three.  But, you know that any part of the root left in the ground
may eventually sprout and start you over again. I've always tossed the broken
tubers in the trash, not worth dealing with or betting on.  But Fernleaf
Peonies can be expensive and if planting/potting up the extra tubers w/out
eyes might yield something of value, I'll go ahead.

BTW, these aren't mine; they are from the MG nursery.  If these tubers could
provide new plant material down the line, they could bring in some cash for

What do you think?
