Did what I was told....

and dug up the tree peony. It is in a sorry state. Planted it up in a large pot with a mixture of homemde compost and shop bought. Fed and watered it.  Fingers crossed that it will recover!!! Was disapointed yester that it didn't show any signs of looking any better but I guess in 24hrs - well maybe that was expecting a bit much!!!! :)

Potted on my beans from Flitters - dont know the name but seemingly they are grown for their flowers!! They are romping along like - well Beans :)

Got a new Rosemary shrub too and it was badly in need of re-potting. Also potted on Chilli plants and peppers. Not chancing putting them out yet. Lost some already - over eager husband !!!Cucumber plants look good strong and healthy!!

Weather forcast not good for weekend but is supposed to be back up to low 20's by Wednesday - and I finish work on Wednesday for the Summer break so bring it on!!!

i am sure (and hope) your tree peony will do very well.  Gardening takes time.
