How to groom Peonies

The peonies make delicious nectar that the ants love.

Peonies would rather have plenty of sun, but can also stand in the half-shade, then they will bloom longer. You should also give them new and nutritious soil every spring.

Peonies can’t stand with wet roots, so here you have a flower you can water like that and water. You can see that they are dry and need water if they do not have shiny nectar on the buds. If the Peonies are dry, the sugar sheets that are on the buds will dry and the flowers may have trouble springing out. At the same time, the ants are very fond of the nectar of the Peonies and will continue to eat on the dried nectar and petals. Then it is advisable to water the roots a little so that they make more nectar, then it will be easier for them to open up. If you water Peonies too much they will struggle to develop well with roots. Peonies are fond of good drainage so put a layer of gravel or pebbles in the bottom when planting them. Find a place for the Peonies where the rainwater will naturally run away.

Remember that Peonies will be very happy for some lime in the spring. Once there is no frost in the ground you give them lime, preferably a little fertilizer as well. The exception is if they are newly planted, then they should not have fertilizer until the following year. Should they be a little wrth and not to flourish one year then they will most likely flourish again next year, so do not despair.

Moving Peonies

Peonies you can get in many colors, choose the one you like best.

Peonies often acquire deep and powerful roots. You can nicely spat them up and move them to another place in the garden, but the best tip is to plant Peonies with the pot on. Leave the Peonies in their pot in the soil until they finish flowering. Then the roots are protected at the same time as they get to develop. It will also be much easier to move the Peons without damaging the roots, should you regret the location of them.

Should you still want to move a Peony you already have in your garden, prepare a deep pot, dig free the Peony and unleash as much of the roots as possible. Remember that peony has deep roots so don’t try to drag them loose, then they will crack. Make sure your pot is as deep as the roots that go into the soil. Put the Peony in the pot and water well. Eventually you can move it to another place in the garden.
