Help which way up to plant my paeony

Posted: 08/04/2016 at 15:49

Hi everybody I hope you can help, I bought this Paeony some weeks ago and just got it out of the bag today.

As you can see in the picture the roots have developed three long pink shoots which I think have started growing on thier side due to their position inside the bag.

I think I may be worrying too much but should I be planting this on its side so that the shoots are pointing upwards or plant it downwards as it should be and assume that the pink shoots will redirect themselves?

thanks in anticipation ????

Thanks Lyn and I appreciate the explanation from you Bob,

maybe waiting for it to grow a bit will reveal all, I'll let you know.

much appreciated

Hi please can you help, I bought this plant in a basket of six little pot plants. They were in the sale and of course had no individual names.

I recognise the other five but I'm a bit suspect with this one because i wouldn't think of a Fern with flat leaves?? What do you think

Hi Ceres, thanks for the advice which makes perfect sense as she only lightly prunes the hedge each time.

She thinks heavy pruning will stop the plants from producing the lovely red leaves.

As you say she will have to sacrifice height and maybe red leaves for a bushier effect,

thankyou.
