Most tree peony seeds failing to sprout roots
I just checked a few of my peony seed beds for sprouting and I hardly see any of them putting out roots. Is this due to the hot summer? I hope the drought and hot summer didn't kill them off.
In the previous years, I usually see most of them sprouting roots by now. I'm not sure if all these seeds are goners, or if they were eaten by pests. Do I still have a chance of having a decent crop of new seedlings next year?
