I have moved house and inherited two very leggy, yellow peony trees. Can I cut them back, and if so, when?
Yes, they are an outdoor tree peony, approximately 7 to 8 ft high with leaves at that height. They have buds on them. The stems are very wavy and about 1inch thick. I think they were planted many years ago (the property was tenanted before I bought it and the garden neglected). I would like to keep them if possible.
I also inherited a beautiful pink peony bush and had wonderful flowers this summer. Can I cut the bush right back now before the winter. New gardener and need advice. Thank you for replying - appreciated
How tall are the peony trees now..what zone do you live in...when you say leggy are you saying there are no leaves so far up on the trees?
I am assuming this is an outdoor tree peony. You can prune them, but I would not cut the main stem of tree. How tall are they now?
