Transplanting Tree Peony
I bought a tree peony at our local nursery. The peony has some tender new growth. It was in a warm nursery showroom. Our temperatures over the next week are going to below normal. The temperatures are going down to a low of 14F to 24F with highs just above freezing.
Because of the new tender growth, I was wondering if I should keep the peony indoors for now, and begin a hardening off process once the daytime highs are closer to mid 40s or so. Would you suggest a week or so of hardening off before planting in the garden?
Also, my other question is will it hurt the tree peony to be kept indoors for a couple of weeks if necessary before planting outdoors?
Thank you kindly for your advice,
