I just laughed about it really. @italydiva I will get a proper peony frame for next year. Last year the wind blew all the petals off too.

That’s the problem, if the weather isn’t great, they’re just so fragile. 😔 A peony support will give them a better chance though 🤞

Went to have a bit of a weed and re prop this up and successfully managed to rip all the petals of it. I've still got one to open so here it is 😱🤣 @italydiva

Such a shame, they've both opened and been battered by the mad winds weve had. Oh well, next year it is then....

@italydiva I only bought it about 8 weeks ago, I was resigned to wait and wait for flowers. And it was upside down in the box and snapped when it arrived so I got half the money back.

It’s done really well then Deborah after such a shaky start. Just wait until next year! 💖🤍

Omg I only planted the bedraggled thing 5 weeks ago!!! Thank you @jaynehynesburton. It's the one I didnt stake. Looks like I'd better sort it out. Maybe I should go round and snap a few more plants? 😄
