Features and Usage:

Greenhouse Growing Instructions:

Peonies prefer to be grown cool (55-60° F). Keep evenly moist, ideally using drip irrigation, never allow to wilt. Space pots to provide good air circulation and keep leaves dry to avoid disease. Generally finish in 9-12 weeks based on growing conditions. Use plant stakes if necessary.

Transplanting Instructions:

Plant in well draining soil in 3 gallon or larger container. Keep root 1-2" below soil surface, allowing up to 50% of the eyes to remain above soil. Once planted, water immediately and apply a broad spectrum fungicide to avoid crown and root rot.

Homeowner Planting and Maintenance Tips:

Established roots are easy to grow in moist, well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. May not bloom if planted as a bare root in the first year.
