Is it safe to replant peony?
I've heard it might be tricky. Is it true? What is the best way to that? It's this year's plant. No flowers yet.
if you use good placement-remember that squash will run and take over the area
squash might 'take over', but other wise would be fine --- lavender likes a bit more dry soil than veggies --
Hello Kimberly. If you have a lot of room, yes these plants can grow together. Space will be the most important factor with these plants. I would give each tomato plant three feet all the way around it. Plus don't forget that you will need to put tomato cages on every tomato plant. Your African Iris and Hibiscus will need that much space too. And water will be a challenge too. Tomatoes thrive with moist soil, but your Iris and Hibiscus prefer very little water. So, if this was my garden, I would plant the tomatoes on one side of the garden and the Iris and Hibiscus on the other side. I would not plant them together. Good luck Kimberly.
