Kathleen Gagan talks about different peony forms, shows how to select and plant peony roots, and gives growing tips.While the beauty and elegance of peonies could seem intimidating to a novice gardener, caring for them is much simpler than you might think.
We asked the Chair of the Peony Society to share her no-nonsense tips for how to grow the perfect, blousy peonies - including how to plant them, care for them and how to help them look their best once they've been cut and arranged in a vase.
Excerpt from Floret's peony farm field trip: We saw row after row of fully blown peonies, sparkling in the late day sun. Getting to know local growers, seeing their farms and hearing their passion for growing is a life altering experience. Years and years of hard work, love and dedication all in full bloom before your eyes. You’ll never see flowers the same way again. #farmerflorist
