    I am saving some lovely big seed pods from my yellow Tree Peony. Would anyone like one when ripe?

    I've tried to resist. I've read how they take a 'while' to flower... I don't think I can resist the challenge.

    Yes please Will an SAE do fine?

    Yes, of course it will. I got the original seeds from my sister and it took 4 years to the first flower. Worth waiting for though!

    Send me your addresses and I will get them off to you. I think it will probably be in August. "The Book", says to sow in September in a cold frame and prick out when seedings are large enough to handle. Grow on in a nursery bed for two or three years before planting out in final position.
