Sowing, Seeds, Planting Ideally, plant bare-root peonies while the soil is still warm in the autumn, or as it warms up in the spring. Container-grown plants can be planted at any time. Peonies prefer heavier soils (but not waterlogged), in a sunny or lightly shaded position. Mix plenty of organic matter into the planting hole and add grit on very heavy soils. Don’t plant too deep. The eyes of the peony roots should be no more than 3-5cm below the soil surface. Any deeper and they may not flower well. For the same reason, avoid mulching as this will gradually bury the crown. Herbaceous peonies are fine in a pot for a few years but their large root system will ultimately outgrow it. Shield from sun and use a soil-based compost with extra grit and lime.
Care Tips In early spring apply a balanced slow-release fertiliser around the base of the plant and mulch with well-rotted compost, avoid burying crown. Dead-head after flowering. Will not flower in its first year. Divide large plants in autumn, remove sections of the crown with at least three dormant growth buds each and roots attached. You may need to stake. Only take 1 or 2 stems from a plant for cutting. For a full guide to growing peonies see our advice pages.
