An introduction to peony culture, types of peonies, planting, nurturing, division and propagation, growing for the best blossoms, and how to prepare a winning entry.
Adriana and Holly will explain how to prepare buds to enter and win ribbons at the Canadian Peony Show in Castlegar, June 20-23, 2019. One of the wonderful things about peonies is that cold storage creates dormancy so flowers bloom on demand!
