Catherine Seidenberg, an exciting new addition to “Team Rosslyn” this spring, has been tackling all sorts of vegetable and flower garden projects.
Most exciting? I’m learning lots from her!
Her most recent caveat was that I’ve been using too much manure around our peonies.
She warned that burying the peony crowns will hinder them from blooming.
She’s carefully excavated all 15+ clumps, so we should be in the clear now.
I have to admit that I’ve been mounding nutrient-rich composted manure over the expired peonies in the autumn for as far back as I can remember. Fortunately I’ve gotten lucky in the past. But now I’ll remedy my ways.
