Peony plants from ground to grower

Green Works peonies are being grown in the south of the Netherlands in Limburg. Here they grow for at least two years in sandy soil. This soil is ideal for the roots to grow.

After two years the peony plants are ready to dig up. No flowers are harvested from the field. To ensure high quality peony plants they stay as long as possible in the ground and are dug up when they're needed.

After the peony plants have been dug up they go to the Green Works facility. Here each crate is scanned so there is a complete track and trace system of how many peony plants there are and where they are in the process.

The peony plants are being divided by hand and counted via an electronic counting system. This way, the exact number of peony plants as agreed with customers all over the world can be delivered.

After dividing the plants they get a fungicide dip so that all places where plants have been cut are protected against fungicide.

To ensure that the peony plants are not dried out on arrival, a plastic sheet is attached under the crates onto the pallet. Afterwards the crates are covered in a plastic sleeve. The humidity level stays perfect for the peony plants.

Afterwards the peony plants are transported to customers all over the world who can now grow peonies. These peonies can be used for the pot or to create bouquets with cut flowers.
