Tree peony ... a friend wants to move one from her garden to her Dad’s. It is about 20 years old. Any advice much appreciated .., thank you.



As big a rootball as possible to minimise disturbance. Water well before and after. Keep out of the ground for as little time as possible. If moving any distance wrap the root ball up in damp sacking.

Many thanks Owd b, that’s very useful.

Yes I agree and sooner rather than later. Might need pruning to help reduce water loss, but might lose this year's flowers
