I love this time of year when the peonies are blooming, the sun is shining and everything is right with the world. OK, these plants really, really put me in a good mood!
I have three of them so far and am going to pick up one or two more this weekend. The ONLY downfall to these plants is that the blooms get so stinking big that they tend to fall over, but I have peony rings around them to keep them as upright as possible.

We have a problem with nut grass. (My mother bought dirt from a nursery and it was in the dirt) We pull it and its back in back in a week. She has used Roundup and it doesnt work. She bought a " nutgrass killer selective herbicide" by a company called Monterey this also had no effect. As you can see from pics below.
We live in Tallahassee, FL where there is an abundance of trees that locals call "Poppin Jack" not sure what technical name is but the nick name sure explains what they do. They pop up
everywhere and grow very quickly. Most of them we are able to manage by mowing over them but the ones that are a problem are the ones that pop up under the large trees. There are some saplings that have popped up around them that are just too big to mow and I don't want to use any type of weed killer. Any suggestions for our out of control "Poppin Jack"?
