Peony help!

Posted: 19/08/2016 at 15:32

Do you know what sort of paeony that is judojub? It looks herbaceous rather than a tree paeony and if that's the case the stems won't survive through the winter, they die back every year to start again in spring. Don't worry when they do die back but don't keep watering  it after that.


It should survive as long as you haven't planted it too deeply as previously suggested and you've loosened the soil around and mixed with the compost so that the roots don't come up against a barrier of hard soil. Keep it moist, don't water it every day and drown it. Should be good.

Please help me with removing these crazy massive ivy of my tree!

Got your PM sucating.


If he roots of this stuff are on the nature reserve then talk to those that own/run it. If the roots in your garden then you'll need to find a local gardener to tackle it. They advertise in local papers/parish magazines, and they drive around in vans around with their phone numbers on. 


I don't think the council will be interested unless it's their nature reserve.

Daffs like good soil, not too dry. Alliums and tulips like it well drained

If you enlarge 1. there are seed heads developing that don't look like sedum. But not a plant I recognise.


The leaves on 3. look rather like crinum leaves
