Tips to Grow and Care for  Peonies

One of nature’s most stunning creations, the peony. With dark green leaves and pink-white blossoms, it makes a lovely addition to any garden.

Peonies full bloom from the end of spring to the beginning of summer. Planting peony in the fall, according to many gardeners, will result in bigger blooms the following year.

This flower does not require pruning for good bloom. Peonies need pruning only to remove damaged or nay diseases spreading through its stem.

Peonies prefer well-drained soil. The soil may not be too rich or fertilized but drainage is a must. Peonies can bloom in average soil.

You should place the pot in a spot where it gets early morning sunlight and afternoon shade.

For quick and healthy growth feed your plant with nutrition rich fertilizer in the growing season.

In the winter, pruning sends the plant dormant so that it regrows in the spring. To send plants dormant, cut some of the node stems by shearing.

Avoid watering from the top of the plant. Watering from the top wet the stems and leaves which increase the chance of fungal disease.
