Laureaat botanische jury - Educational award 

14.10.2018 The Garden Days at Beervelde

Award for the beautiful peony roots that encourage us to plant in the fall. 

"More and more garden experts are advising to plant peonies in the fall. Newly harvested and divided roots are ideal. Jeaninne Lemmens from Graefswinning tries to draw attention to this planting technique. Autumn is a good planting period for many plants and therefore also for those beautiful peonies. Hence Jeaninne Lemmens rightly receives the educational award from Beervelde."


Laureaat botanische jury - Educational & collection award 

11.05.2019 The Garden Days at Beervelde

"You could say that peony grower Jeaninne Lemmens teaches us the garden lovers to deal with peonies again. The single flowers of this collection are abundantly visited by bees and other pollinators."

For Paeonia lactiflora "Allen Rogers"

Paeonia lactiflora "Allen Rogers". A compact and very floriferous peony. Flowers are semi double to double. Stamens and carpels show. Multiple side buds turn the plant into a fluffy white dome. 

Flowers are held just above healthy dark green foliage. Stems are strong and no support is required. This softly scented peony was named after Allen Rogers author of the book Peonies and a lovely dedicated peony nurseryman.
