I bought the tree peony a few months ago and it was planted in pot soon after. It was fine until recently. In the photo you can see an aquilegia that seeded itself in the pot.
I hope you can help, as I don’t want to lose it.
I have another tree peony planted in the garden which is about 35 years old, which hasn’t had any problems.
