Shifting peonies

flowergirl70ksMarch 22, 2010

I have noticed the last 2 years when cleaning up around my peonies there is an empty spot in the middle. Is this because they are old plants(over40 years)?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Yes. It will be a big job to dig and divide your peonies but will be worthwhile. You need not do more than one or two a year. To be able to work on the soil after you have removed the plant, adding compost digging it in. I have some here that need the same treatment, but will wait until I have some help. I know I will have three or four large divisions I will need to relocate or give away. Al
