Nut, can I move my tree peony? and should I wait until after it has flowered in early May? and should I cut it back a bit to make it easier to move?

Edd, just a thought but do you have a technical college or university near you? You could approach the science dept. and ask if they would analyse it for you?

Planting Advice

Sarah, the email function has not worked for about a year; just keep checking 'followed threads'.

You could also try Hollyhocks for height, though it is difficult to get the single variety except in almost black; I find the doubles look rather like pom-poms. Cosmos also grows pretty tall also Verbena Bonarienses.

Good luck with it and post some pics later in the season

Take the aubretia out of it's pot and gently tease the roots apart. Make sure there is a little earth in the paving cracks before planting; keep watered for the first few weeks
