Oberon46 said:I can't believe you have pips already. But then you are in Georgia It must be really hard to figure out what and how to move your plants. I would have buckets everywhere. We have talked about moving from time to time and I have said ALL my peonies, lilies, roses, iris are coming with me. It would look like revenge of the gophers!
It would look like the revenge of the gophers here as well. I've already told the DH the peonies, irises, and lilies will be going if we move! I've been saving the plastic grocery bags just in case.
LG, I agree, I doubt the next homeowner would care for the plants the way I do. We have over 900 homes in our subdivision, and I've not seen any gardens as heavily landscaped as ours.
When we moved from our last home in 2004, the new homeowners had no gardening experience, and did not take care of my plants that I left. I would periodically drive by, and was so disappointed about how they let the garden go to hell.
The pips always increase here during the winter, and are not affected by the cold weather, as long as they don't sprout, and start putting up stems.
