Can I move my peony?

Posted: 28/01/2012 at 17:33

I have successfully moved several peonies, despite my mother always telling me its not possible!.  I have planted in pots and other borders, the trick being to dig the roots up as a clump to fool them into thinking they haven't been moved.  I'd try to keep the same aspect though - I have split them after flowering too, but they are only successful in moving from a like to like location (don't try and put them on the opposite side of the garden).  Don't plant them too deep either, as they need to 'feel' their way through!

Foxgloves, bluebells and ferns grow under mine - I've not had much success with anything else though!

Torbay Palm

Posted: 28/01/2012 at 17:01

Like many others across the UK we have a 10ft Torbay Palm which unfortunately 'died' last winter after being relentlessly battered by the cold for two years.  Having left the trunk in place and patiently waited, we now have several new palms growing around the base.  The problem is, I'd earmarked that part of the garden for another project since the loss of the original plant.  What I need to know is can these new plants be successfully split from the parent, and if so, how easy (or difficult) is it?  It may be that the new project is shelved, as we did love the original!
