Peonies resent disturbance, you might not kill the plant but they have been known to stop flowering for some time after

Same. Mine stay in the ground because I love them and because I can't afford to keep replacing them every year

Good morning all, after sleeping twelve hours catch up, I'm having a relaxing day in the garden today, and a little bit of allotment later.

What a beautiful rose that is John and I understand your frustrations with discovering bare roots in a pot-plant. I had a similar experience when I bought my white rose, that fell out of its much larger pot with the tiniest root system I have ever seen. I gave it two seasons worth of TLC in the pot before it went in the ground.

I have to admit that buying plants from my local DIY centre is not really the best choice or standard of plant. Sadly, nurseries (which I can't get to or even the regular and more expensive GC (which I rarely get to ) still produce a much higher quality plant in its correctly sized pot and raring to grow.
