Can I plant peonies in the summer?
I just bought some clearance roots that looked healthy, but every source I look at says to plant peony roots in the fall. A few sites advised planting them in pots and then transplanting, but I also read that peonies don't like to be disturbed.
Why can't I plant peonies right now? And what would you recommend doing: waiting, planting them in a pot and transplanting, or planting straight in the ground now?
