Growing Peonies

When caring for Peony Sarah Bernhardt, the soil should be well drained. Use rich in organic matter, and have regular access to moisture. Always position you peonies in full sun if possible but ensure that the plants are not left too moist. This can lead to rot or fungal diseases such as botrytis blight. In areas with harsher winters, mulch around the roots will help protect them from freezing temperatures. Additionally, dividing and transplanting plants every 3-4 years will help ensure the plant remains healthy over time. Finally, make sure to remove any spent blooms to encourage new growth and limit the spread of disease.

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!
