Question about eyes being exposed thru winter
I planted some potted peonies last year during the spring, but I've noticed on a couple of them that some of their topmost "eyes" were exposed. Off and on a few times I would try to gently pack a little bit of dirt over them, but it would always wash away. We have had a pretty mild winter here in the south this year, it dipped in the low twenties, maybe the upper teens a few nights, but I can't help but worry if the eyes that were exposed above ground will be damaged somehow. Do you think they will send up shoots? Anyone know what I should expect?
Thanks in advance!
