yes, keep them in their pots for now. Don't be alarmed when they die back, it's normal, they'll leaf up again in autumn

I'll have another go sometime pp. see if it works.

Paeony. Is this one worth keeping?

I don't sell them wakeshine but I put a few paeony seeds on the seed swap most years.

I have a minute red one, only about 6'' tall, a couiple of years or 3 old and it's got two flowers, they're not usually as quick as that. 4 years minimum I think but no real records

I was looking for an old thread,

In 'discussions started by nutcutlet', I get 1-15 of 151 threads. If I click on the green 2, I'm brought back to the latest posts page of the forum. Is this something in my settings? I tried this before with the old forum and it was just the same.

remind me at seed time pp and you can have any of them (provided they all make seed)

The yellow is my favourite, the flowers are large and in a good year the seedpods are huge. I have better photos but I can't find them. They're not in the file called 'plant pics'

Plant ID please

or possibly a seedling of, it doesn't look dark enough.

I should imagine they seed back to bog standard cow parsley eventually

Hi wakeshine, yes, delavayi is a tree paeony. I also have a yellow one, when this one was born I had 2 different yellow ones but I let one get swamped by a huge viburnum and lost it.

I took the seed from the red one but this is different.

I'm going to find some pics

Not too keen pp but hard to dump your own babies, (probably a teenager by now). I think about it every year but it's avoided the shredder so far.
