can peonies be planted too shallow?
I just planted 2 bareroot peonies, following the diagram on the packet. The diagram showed the root sitting so the top is just barely below the surface. So I popped it in so that it's sitting just barely below the surface, with a bit of redwood bark over it in case it wasn't deep enough.
Did I plant it too shallow? Will the bareroot "settle in" and send down deeper roots? Thanks.
BTW, the root I dug up last week has reddish-brown growths poking up--I guess it's waking up! I hope this one will bloom this year!
