is also the sea
son of the year
to divide and
transplant your old clumps. While
a peony will grow and bloom to
some extent with neglect, it does
so much better with proper care
that no gardener should neglect
iL In preparing the bed. dig it
out to a depth of about 13 in
ches and. if the soil is Inferior,
fill the bed with superior soil.
Then add a fertilizer. Well-decayed
manure will do very well,
but do not add too much of this
for it is apt to cause root rot.
Coarse bonemeal, mixed with the
soil, before planting, is very ben
eficial. A pint may be added for
eaeh plant to be used. Then in the
spring, before the plants appear,
rake in Rightly finely ground
bonemeal. Do this each two weeks
until the buds appear on the
plants. After the blooming season
Is over, it Is well to give each
plant a trowelful of bonemeal and
one of wood ashes.
Peonies buoula be pianted so
that the large eyes or the top of
the root are two Inches beneath
the soil. They should be planted
at least two feet apart each way.
If yon already have a bed of peo
nies aad have not fertilized them
for some years. It Is well to dig in
decayed manure between the
Plants, Do not place It directly on
top of plants, this seemingly
causes "blind buds". A light
straw mulch is sometimes benefi
cial to the plants however. Too
deep planting -will also cause
Wind Mids. A lack of fertfUxaUon
is another cause. Bat the most
often cause 1. poor plants. If oae
is planning to grow peonies It
will 4eclddly pay to get good
roots from reliable dealers. Too
ftw gardeners, commercial peony
growers report, realize that there
are maay peonies that develop
more .W I ad buds than buds that
will come Into bloom.
There are so many splendid
varieties, that It is difficult to
give the "beet" ones. Last spring
when I visited the peony gardens
in bloom. It seemed each one I
looked at was finer than the one
