'Beautiful weather' arrived here today. I was in Kelso this morning and there was very little to see in His Grace's garden centre. Even in sunny Durham my earliest peonies are just in bud.

Lucky Hans.

Thanks for the pictures, Hans. All the peonies are great but P. delavayii is knocking out. It is #1 in your collection for me. So far.

I'll have to check out all these photos later but I have a question about small Paeonies

Which are suitable to pot culture like P. cambessedesii?

My cambessedesii has only ever had one flower. This is it's third year flowering. The other two stems never produce a flower. I bought it the size it is now. What is the best mix it should be in?
