Growing your Peony (Paeony) Louis Van Houtte

When it comes to growing peonies, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Peonies require full sun and well-drained soil in order to thrive. They also benefit from being planted in an area where they will be protected from strong winds. It can take a few years for them to grow to full size. After this you can divide them with a spade.

To plant your peony, dig a hole that is about twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Place the roots in the hole and then fill in with soil, tamping it down lightly as you go. Water well after planting.

Peonies will bloom in late spring or early summer. To encourage more blooms, deadhead spent flowers as they fade. With proper care, your peony plants will provide you with beautiful blooms for many years to come.

Our bare root perennials can take a couple of years to fully develop. Once Peony Sarah Bernhardt (Paeonies) have established you will be able to divide the peonies easily with a spade. They are a great investment and work well as a cut flower.

Caring for your Bare Root Perennials

Buying and growing bare root perennials is more cost-effective than buying a potted plant from a garden centre later in the season, plus, it gives plants a great head start for your garden.

Simply pot up your bare root perennials when you receive them and keep them in a cold frame or cool place, around 10C is perfect. Then, if there is a cold snap, they can be easily moved away from any risk of frost. Once the soil has warmed up, your already flourishing plant can be transplanted to the spot you have been eyeing up all winter!
