With the unusual amount of snow we had I didn’t think that my peony would grow this year let alone flower. However my houseplant theory of ‘treat ’em mean, keep ’em keen’ should obviously be applied to the garden. The peony has 21 buds which is an all time best.
We’ve had it in our garden for about eight years. It was part of a plant from my Dad’s front garden which in turn came from my Grandma’s. I don’t know how it works with perennials but theoretically the peony is older than me!
