I would like to give a peony to some friends who have a wedding anniversary in August. When is the best time to do this? Now or after they have flowered?



Your question suggests you're going to dig up some peony to give to your friends - bear in mind they hate root disturbance, and the piece you pass on may well sulk for a long time.

Ours took the best part of four years to flower again after we moved it, despite its being a large, well established plant. "Sulk" is the perfect word to describe it, Bamboo.
