INSTRUCTIONS TO PLANT A PEONY DIVISION
At Pivoines Capano, we dug, divide and plant our peonies only in the fall. We strongly believe that it is the best period to guarantee a successful planting.
You can plant in the fall until the soil is not frozen. Plant in full sun, in a well drained soil and if possible, where it will get a good snow cover for a natural winter protection. Do not plant your peony at the same location where another peony was planted before. Soil can exhausted and contain fungal diseases.
It is also recommended to prepare the soil in advance, as early as the spring season before the arrival of your peony. Mix bone meal and/or well rotted manure with the plantation soil. Never use fresh manure. The eyes and the crown must never enter in direct contact with these products. Apply them far from the crown.
