Fresh Peony Roses

Our picking time at the peony farm is for three weeks from Mid November through to the first week of December.  This is an extremely busy time for us.  The blooms are picked early in the morning or late afternoon, stored in our cool  room before travelling locally and beyond  for distribution.Our peony patch  has seven varieties of peonies - all doubles - you know the ones with oodles of petals. We have one red, one white and 5 shades of pink.

Good Vase Life

Life is too short not experience freshly cut peony roses straight from The Flower Farm, however follow my top tips to ensure they last and last.

If you pick up peonies and need to travel distances where they may become warm, bring buckets filled with ice to ensure they are transported in chilled water. 

Once home, choose a spot for your vase out of direct sunlight and out of a warm room.  Both of these things will wilt your peonies.

Finally, snip the stems and change the water every 3rd day using cool water from the fridge.

All these things will maximise your floral enjoyment.  For more tips on how to care for your flowers visit our blog Ensuring Vase Life Longevity.
