Caring for peonies - 2 tips

  1. Peonies like a sunny place and a lot of space to spread out. If they get too big, they can also be divided. You should do this in the fall. Dig out the peony and divide it with the digging fork in the middle. Don't be surprised if she doesn't flower the following year, she needs this time-out because she doesn't really like to transplant.
  2. Peonies impress with their large, double flowers. But this also has the disadvantage that the flowers become very heavy and can easily snap off. Here you should support the plant. The best way to do this is with a flower ring that supports the plant.

By the way: If you want to enjoy the blossoms indoors, you can cut off the flowers of the peonies and put them in a vase. You do this when the flowers have opened up to half. If cut too early, the buds will no longer open, and they will soon wither away.
