Peony ID Please

I think thats right Pansyface, the top one is very like Sarah Bernhardt and was labelled up as such.  The bottom one was the peony labelled Duchesse de Nemours, don't think it's on the list.  I'll have to see what Kellways say.

What to plant to follow spring bulbs in part shade?

I use geraniums too Will, such a great variety to choose from, one for every occasion as they say.

Evening all, Still feeling rubbish, I'm supposed to be going to Firsborn's tomorrow to help Mabel celebrate her second birthday but I'm not going if the cold doesn't improve drastically.  Wouldn't want to pass it around.

Have been lolling around all day but did go for a stroll round the garden to get some fresh air and noticed that both my new peonies had opened up.  However neither of them was white which was a bit disappointing as one of them is supposed to be Duchesse de Nemours.  I have started a thread hoping to identify them, so if anyone knows a bit about peonies please take a look.

Verdun, trust you to turn up on the wrong day, or was it intentional so that you would get a special guided tour, although I guess not as it probably meant you missed out on the cream tea.

Hubby is cooking a curry for tea in the vain hope that I'll be able to taste something.

Last year I ordered two peonies from Kellways Duchesse de Nemours and Sarah Bernhardt.  The have both flowered and both are pink def not Duchesse de Nemours.  Can anyone identify them for me please.  I have complained to Kellways and I am awaiting their response.

Morning all,  Haven't long got up.  Unfortunately cold is worse today so the rain outside wont bother me as  I lie on the sofa with a cuppa.  Think I'll send hubby for some choccy biscuits.

Having problems too.  I purchased a Sarah Bernhardt and a Duchesse de Nemours, both seem to be pink.  This is the first year so I am presuming I have been given the wrong plant.

Afternoon All,  Feeling really grotty today, cold is horrible, worst one I've had in ages so feeling sorry for myself.  To add insult to injury the tumble dryer has packed in, and no, I can't dry it on the line because the drying area is currently full of plant pots that I am looking after for my friend who is moving house.

Don't even feel like gardening so it must be bad

Right, that's enough moaning I'm off to take more cold and flu tabs and make a cuppa.  Dove send me a cream tea to cheer me up, pretty please.

I overwintered a number of them last year.  Some I just cut back and left in the pot in the garden.  One out of two overwintered this way.  The rest I put into a cold greenhouse after cutting back and all of those survived and are looking lovely this year.
