Should I cut down peony plants

Posted: 04/09/2013 at 14:39

Wasn't sure what to do with mine so I've left them. I'm gonna start chopping now Stacey, I did get some gorgeous flowers from mine but not too many so if a drastic cut down does the job i'm there, I'd love to get an abundance of flowers from mine next year. Here goes....

Daintiness that must be really annoying. My keyboard at work is working just fine but my keyboard at home is driving me insane, I'll be happily typing away and then the cursor will suddenly jump off somewhere and either type in the middle of what i've already written 5 lines up, or it'll take me off to another page altogether. grrr. sometimes technology sucks

Wasps!

Having trouble with wasps myself this year. Haven't been clever enough to think to build a wasp trap but i've tried all the usual stuff, you know jam jars full of sticky gooey jam with water etc, and the little b******* just fly round it and ignore it! I think they're developing some kind of super sense or intelligence, god help us!

No berries on my rowan trees

Mine is bursting with berries too Dick. I'm new to all of this so don't know what the appearance of berries or not is supposed to mean but I'm hoping it means a mild winter and not another one like last year. I've been so busy admiring how pretty they look and ooh aren't we lucky I didn't for a minute stop to consider that it might be a foreteller of doom

Hi everyone,

I'm having trouble with this site last couple of days. I log in, try and respond/interact and then I kicked off of the site and sent to the "Oops we are having technical problems" page. If I try to log back in again, exact same thing. Not even sure its going to let me type and post this!

Anyone else having trouble or is it getting personal with me?!  Heather

It takes an awfully long time to remodel and replant a garden. Slow and steady is much better from a results point of view. And well done for the design ideas. Nothing wrong with bringing in the professionals (I wouldn't have know how either!) but to have the vision to be able to "see" how you want it to look is a knack not everyone has, and that includes me. Good luck with it and watch out for those knees

Sara 4, what can I say? Can't help giggling to myself about that! Must have been soooo infuriating though. So how long did it take other half to pick it all up?! Assuming you were cruel enough (oops I mean deservedly frustrated!) to make him actually pick it up. Plus side, he's probably not gonna be in a hurry to do it again!
