    Default Peony seeds wanted

    I know they are supposed to take around 5 years to flower from seed but I really would like to have a go.

    Has anyone got any different varieties in flower and willing to save some seed?
    I've lots of seed In my seed box or willing to have a go at saving anything if I have it.

    I have the most common ones, a dark red double and a pale pink double, none of the “special” ones. I normally deadhead them but will let a pod of each set this year if you want.

    I will take a pic as and when they come out and let you decide and shove them in your end of year parcel if you want them. I have a double red, a single red, something else and sarah bernhardt.

    Thank you NG and Farendwoman - yes please!!

    The garden I went to visit on Saturday had a yellow tree peony and it was lovely.

    I've got the basic, I think double red one, several of them but they seem to do very well and they flower at a time when I've not much else going on.

    I’ve just had a rummage in the undergrowth.
    There’s a little tiddler I could uproot.
    Shall we chance it travelling ok??
    I’ll save you some seeds later too.
