  1. Why are there empty spots in the Peony Garden?

    We have removed diseased peonies from the Peony Garden.  A cover crop was planted and tilled under to add organic matter to the soil.  After the peony bloom, heirloom annuals are planted in the empty spaces to add color and interest over the summer.  New, healthy peonies will be planted in the empty spaces in upcoming years.
