Peonies have a reputation for hating being moved.  However, my experience is that they survive well enough so,  Stacey, I would move it into the sun, plant shallowly and mark with a cane.

Stacey, have a red peony shooting,,yes.  Since I replanted it a few years ago in full sun and slightly proud of,the soil it has produced stunning flowers.  Why?  Have you just cut it back?  I don't think you have killed it....all top growth dies back anyway.  

If you can get your money back and parkers allow you to keep seboldii, just pot it up and expect it to make something prob next year.....foliage that is, not flowers 

KEF, it's just a shame the WUM upsets you.  You need to use the ignore button cos he won't go away.  The rest of us are your friends 

Best time to buy hostas and other plants?

Posted: 16/02/2014 at 19:45

Hostafan, if it's your passion and your skill why not start your own business growing hostas?  

I used to grow  and sell tender perennials down here and did well.  A joint venture to grow larger scale floundered but if you have a niche market ...locally too....it could be a winner 

I prob have a mere 8 or so different varieties ....mmmmm, maybe few more.....and will now look up that Dutch nursery Hostafan to add a couple more

Susan, a greenhouse is exciting.....ESP your first one.  But just a little patience yet 

What's the weather like in your area?

Perennial Perfection...

Did you suggest hostas Hostafan?  

Have to agree with Salino......an evergreen shrub or two would give a nice framework, a bit of bulk to complement those perennials

Yes Busy.  Ask for more than ??ou think too.  I've had fun n games with Orange last year and ended up with a cash refund of £250 plus year's free rental of a dongle.  Plus 4 months' free broadband.   

 

Rhubarb & Onion

Posted: 16/02/2014 at 19:17

Not too near each other though.  Rhubarb spreads a lot.  Rhubarb needs a lot of water too to thrive and onions won't enjoy that
