Watching Seedlings Grow 2017

In the cold GH. Most stood outside over winter. Paeonia tenuifolia, front of top pic, stood outside for nearly 2 winters. The first to germinate keeled over and I thought that might be it. But doing very well now. Pricking out soon.

sometimes when you can't find an internet reference to a plant it's because it's not the accepted name

tree paeonies are deciduous and not early to leaf, they had yellow leaves in autumn but they dropped off as expected. They aren't the most elegant plants when naked but worth waiting for.

There are more tree paeonies than ludlowii. short suckering ones, long gangly ones, spreading ones. But all deciduous

might be a tree paeony. If so shouldn't need staking, maybe came with the plant when bought.

agree, leave it alone. Propagate by root cuttings when it's big enough

I understand Quickthorn as hawthorn and I think it's much better for hedging than Blackthorn (the one with the sloes) because it doesn't sucker all over your garden.

Common names are a bit of a trap.  They mean different things to different people, Crataegus mongyna, which I call hawthorn, is what you want as the main plant in a mixed hedge.

my experience of the forum popular Trachylospermum jasminoides isn't good. Mine died and on visiting other gardens in the area I see yellow leaves, brown bits and dead twigs. Rarely a thing of beauty in this area.

OK if you want nice smelly flowers and don't care what the rest of the plant looks like
