Moving with bare root peonies - help!
Just received my carefully selected bare root peonies in the mail to plant this week and my husband found out we are being transferred to a new state. Never had peonies before and this was my birthday present:-) I don't want to plant them here and leave - would love to take them along, but we won't have a new house for a few months. Would you recommend planting them in pots and leaving those outside until we move - then transfer to the ground in the spring, or am I just asking for trouble doing that? I have read they do best when planted in their permanent location in the fall, but clearly that's not an option anymore. Hate to leave them here...btw, how long can they survive unplanted?
