Autumn peony harvest

Let winter work its magic

Join us at the farm for sound advice and choose from our wide range of beautiful old-fashioned varieties and bold newcomers. Our catalog is available online. If you want to be sure your favourite peony is still there, order in advance through our website or contact us beforehand.

We harvest our sturdy and energetic roots in autumn. After a thorough wash they are divided. At Graefswinning, this is done exclusively manual to assure we only choose the best! Often our peonies flower in the first year.

Autumn is the ideal time to plant your roots. Let winter works its magic and as soon as spring approaches, new growth starts to emerge. Of course a good soil preparation is half the work done. Visit our hints and tips section for more information. 

Hints and Tips

Throughout the day, mini-presentations are given in the barn. Autumn is the planting time par excellence and therefore we like to touch on some peony root facts; practical plant advice for your soil; and the key question to transplant or not to transplant a peony!

Where

Graefswinning farm address  - Diestersteenweg 222 - 3850 Nieuwerkerken in Belgium. 

We are located just off the main road from Sint-Truiden to Herk de Stad. So some GPS devices don't recognise us. Please check a route planner before you leave. 

Parking space is available at the farm.

Mini-presentations, peony shop and order pick-up are in the barn on the left side of the farm.

ATTENTION: In October the fields are prepared for winter. If you wish to see our fields in flower, you are welcome to joint us at the Spring Peony Weekends

When

October 2019, dates to be confirmed.

We look forward to your visit.
