Our attemp to dig out old peony
Last week we dug up some old Karl peony last that previous owner planted right next to the fence. We wanted to move it away from the fence so that it can have more room next spring. The plant is older than I originally thought and the root is ginormous and my husband accidentally broke it in half. The root measured 12 inches in lengthen. At least the one that broke off. We didn't bother digging the other half out feeling that we might harm the plant rather than helping. Strangely, the 12 inches that we got out have only 1 eye. And this is the part that was very bushier side. I replanted it but have a feeling that it's going to be disappoint Spring. Anyone know why there is only 1 eye?
