What eats peony buds?
I have noticed the buds on the two new peonies that I bought in pots this spring were eaten shortly after planting them. I did plant them in a new area, and nothing had been planted there before. These two peonies are the only peonies planted in this area. Any idea what eats peony buds? And how to stop them?
The whole buds were not eaten at once. They were eaten a small bit at a time over a period of days. The plants affected were Mons Jules Elie and Primevere (both fragrant).
