We grow about a dozen varieties to assure a continuous flow of freshly picked peonies during a four-week period from mid-May until mid-June. First we pick the early varieties and as the season progresses, the other varieties follow.
Throughout the season, we can overload you with a succession of different and exiting varieties ... which is just the epitome of luxury!
We follow the seasons and do not force our flowers, therefore we are totally dependable on the weather. This is our deliberate choice; slowly grown they last longer and bring more joy. As a result, we cannot promise a certain variety at a certain time. Looking on the bright side, it is always a joy to see the plump fully grown buds ready for shipping.
Cultivated with care
In early spring the lateral buds are removed to ensure that all the energy flows to one beautiful flower. Once the buds are mature they are picked, this is precision work. To avoid any damage the sorting and bundling is done with care and therefore by hand. All this to assure that our cut flower peonies provide at least a week of pleasure.
Depending on the weather we pick the mature flower buds once to several times a day. But we never pick more than 1/3 to 1/2 of one plant, to keep the plant healthy and strong and safeguard its future. Only the prettiest and largest buds are selected the others remain on the plant.
Vase life and after-care
Upon arrival unpack and follow the simple instructions which are included. Do not place the flowers close to fruits since the ethylene gases will fast forward the maturing process! Keep them out of direct sunlight and if possible put them somewhere cool at night. Always use a totally clean vase and water.
There is nothing like a peony to reveal slowly but surely all its beauty. Therefore, we try to reduce the cooling period as much as possible. Once they are in an ambient temperature, they will need a few days to flourish. After that, you can enjoy the open blooms.
