Very charming, herbaceous perennials, our rock garden peonies have foliage, texture and blossoms sized in perfect proportion to their smaller stature.

Peony Soil

Peonies love good drained rich organic nutritious soils. Over the years we have developed a tedious process for growing the highest quality of peonies possible.

Peony planting of Ada Niva

Peonies can be planted manually or mechanically. We have chosen to plant our Exclusive Peonies manually and the other Peonies by machine.

Before planting the peonies, the soil needs to be prepared well. This is a crucial element in the peony growing process. First the soil where the roots is grown needs to be properly flattened and drained in order to prevent potential water damage (from heavy rain).

After having cultivated the land properly (with a milling- or spade-machine) the roots are to be planted at a depth of 2 - 3 cm. This depth is very decisive because if the roots are planted too deep, the production of flowers will diminish or even completely vanish. The distance between the cuttings depends on the variety. Some varieties need more or less space than others. Furthermore, the time-period that roots will remain on a particular spot has to be taken into consideration as well.



Fertilizing and Weeding the Peonies

Peonies must be fertilized during the winter months. There is no rule to the amount of usage of each element (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium), because this depends on the nature of the soil. Peonies flourish best on soil with a pH from 6 to 7.

During the winter season chemicals against weeds can be used as well. It is important to do this during the cold season, because then the roots are at "rest" (dormant). Otherwise the roots are apt to absorb the chemicals which will cause damage to the peony.

When the young root starts growing in spring several kind of preventive fungicides can be used. This can be persisted until two weeks before harvesting.

Upcoming of the Peonies in Early Spring

When the first Peonies show up in February / March, the use of wind fences can be most helpful to protect the still vulnerable peony plants. The fences are usually placed from the east to west to keep the cold northern wind out.

No gates are placed from south to north because that allows the wind to keep the plants dry and prevent the spread of Botrytis. When the plants are still small and vulnerable to diseases, copper sulphate can be used to ensure a firm and healthy plant. Several fungicides can be used to protect the plants against Botrytis (preventive).



Mowing the Peonies

The mowing of peonies takes place at the end of August. It is very important that all dead organic material is removed because all kind of diseases lives in dead organic material.

This material can be gathered by a tractor with a sweeping tool attached or by hand with picking forks. The last remains must always be removed manually.
