Well, they started well. Had lots of juicy buds...til the petals just fell off most of them and the others dried up! 🙄 but it had just been transplanted so I’m guessing it was a little stressed! #theresalwaysnextyear #peony

Went to my friends yesterday and was admiring all her red peonies...as I left she handed me this, she’d gone and dug one up for me ❤️ it’s had a good soak so I hope it’ll be ok. Think the pinky red flowers will look fab against the acid green of the Euphorbia 💚❤️ #peony #rubraplena

@rachelbrooks they don't mind being moved as long as you don't plant too deep. The tubers should be just below soil level
