Video: First peonies being dug up at Green Works

The Peony plants have been in the ground for 2 years already, and it is time to dig up the first Peonies at Green Works. They leave the Peonies in the ground for as long as possible and dig them up per order. The Peonies in the video below were planted in the autumn of 2014. These Peony plants will be available for sale in the autumn of 2016. All of the Green Works Peony plants are delivered from their own nurseries (two years growth) where the flowers are not harvested from the plants.

The Peonies are dug up in September / October / November and stored until planting time. When you need to store Peonies at this time do not store them at temperatures much lower than the outdoor soil temperature. When stored at much colder temperatures it will break the dormancy of plant too early and will create early sprout forming.

Planting Peonies
The best time to plant the Peonies is in autumn. The roots can grow better in a cool period which will turn into more flowers in spring. Try to plant the Peonies before mid November. Peonies that are planted in autumn should not be cooled during storage. When the cooling period lasts too long the plant will start to grow even before the winter. This will result in damage to the plant in the winter or in early spring.
