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 catalogue 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, but we will have a large selection available at the farmshop. 

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

Hints and Tips

Throughout the day I look forward to answer your peony questions! . Of course, a good soil preparation is half the work done. Visit our hints and tips section for more information. 

Pick up of orders

We will contact you by email once your order is ready. You can pick-up your order on one of the pick up days, but please keep in mind that they like to be planted as fresh as possible. If you have not received an email by the middle of October, please check your spam basket.    

Where

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.
