Harvest Tips

  • Try your hardest to wait 2 - 3 years before harvesting flowers from a newly planted peony; otherwise you may throttle its future growth. If you can't resist, only snip half of the available blooms and leave as much foliage as possible on the plant. 
  • Harvest the stem before the bud opens, when it feels like a squishy marshmallow, for longest vase life
