A while back, a couple of years it seems, I gave a bunch of plants to a friend who was just starting to landscape around her new home. I brought over all sorts of things. Tom even planted a huge Lilac on the side of the house for Sandy. She was thrilled!
However, just the other day she sends me this note on Facebook:
Glory this is about the peonies ( herbacious) kind you gave me 2 years ago. Well, last year they didn't come up and I thought they were a goner. To my surprise while weeding this year I found them coming up. What a nice surprise. Can't wait to see the blooms. My soil is so poor, even with fertilizer no bloom. Any suggestions or know of a good place to order a ton of soil? Thanks Glor
